Aquinas Crowe approaches the question of “What is the real Australia?” with great honesty.
In the film, Aquinas draws us into his personal experience of Australia with a rare openness. He also reflects upon wider notions of Australian identity and culture. For Aquinas, the essence is to celebrate and respect the diversity of cultures, and to care for country and for all the people who live side by side on this land.
Australia is “for all people to come together, learn their cultures, to learn how to look after our country and look after all the people who come from overseas…”
Aquinas is supported by the Yiriman Project.
