Summary
"Baz Luhrmann?s epic film Australia was widely criticised for its depiction of the past when it was released in late 2008. This article suggests that such criticisms myopically centred on historical details, exaggerating the film?s purportedly inauthentic representation of the past. By analysing its portrayal of the four father figures in the film I will examine how Australia engages with the histories of inter-racial sexual relations and the governmental aims of segregation and assimilation during the interwar period."
