Explores a largely forgotten period in Australian filmmaking during the Cold War. While Sydney had its Waterside Workers' Film Unit, making pro-trade union films, Melbourne had its loose equivalent in the Realist Film Association, offering vibrantly campaigning depictions of the lives of ordinary Australians, sometimes with radical narrative structure. The association was originally aligned to the politics of the Communist Party of Australia, yet leading members broke with Stalinism five years before Khruschev's denunciation of the former leader's crimes.
