Made by Film Australia 1979. Directed by Dean Semler. 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, New South Wales. 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 from Academy Award winner Dean Semler captures all the atmosphere of a weekly ritual repeated in country towns right across Australia.
