Summary This film proposes a critique of white Australian cultural history, specifically the construction by Europeans of images of the Australian landscape through maps, paintings, photography and films. In the words of the filmmaker 'it charts a mythic realm and a geographical entity'. It is suggestive rather than conclusive in attempting to sharpen our vision of these cultural and geographical contours through juxtaposing mainly 'found' images with excerpts from written texts.
