AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The film explores the remarkable life of the greatest living Australian composer, Peter Sculthorpe. At 85 Sculthorpe is a true legend in Australia – not simply because of the extraordinary range of the music he has written, but because he has been centre stage in Australia’s cultural life for over sixty years. In fact, the story he tells through his music, and the story we will examine in the film, is the story of Australia since the Second World War – the shift politically from being European oriented and still part of the British Empire, to being focused now on the ‘empires’ to the north – of Japan and China, Asia, Bali, Indonesia and Malaysia.'
