Take a compelling personal journey with David Stratton as he relates the fascinating evolution of Australia's cinema history. Taking us back to his first experience of discovering Australia through film at his local cinema in England, David recounts first seeing images of a strange and exotic landscape he would eventually call home. His migration to Australia as a ‘ten pound pom’ in 1963 would provide him with a unique opportunity to help shape the cultural landscape of a country gradually discovering its own identity, before embarking on a life of international travel and national recognition as our most trusted film reviewer. Alongside David, the protagonists of this remarkable story are the giants of Australian cinema – both behind the camera and in front of it - including George Miller, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Sam Neill, Bryan Brown, Hugo Weaving, Eric Bana, Jacki Weaver and Judy Davis.
