1979, 22 Minutes
A shearer, his wife and six children leave their farmhouse at daybreak for the week's big event - a Saturday visit to the nearest town, Lake Cargelligo.
There's a trip to the barber, icecream for the kids, the weekly football match and a beer at the pub. Come nightfall, it's either a movie or the local dance.
This beautifully shot film by Academy Award winner Dean Semler captures all the atmosphere of a weekly ritual repeated in country towns right across Australia.
