AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A 'mock-umentary' about making a documentary, From the Tropics to the Snow sees a scriptwriter and a director argue their approaches to the problem of making a comprehensive documentary about Australia. One favours an experimental style, the other a more conventional approach. Wittily observed excerpts from both proposed films indicate the faults of each, and the problems of making such a film are chronicled with considerable humour.
