Australia Day
The Back of Beyond (1954)

Sunday 26th January - Time To Be Confirmed

The Back of Beyond is a feature-length, award-winning Australian documentary film produced and directed by John Heyer for the Shell Film Unit. It is Heyer's most successful film, and arguably Australia's most successful documentary. In 2006, it was included in a book titled 100 Greatest Films of Australian Cinema, with Bill Caske writing that it is "perhaps our national cinema's most well known best kept secret".

The Back of Beyond follows Tom Kruse, the mailman who ensures that the mail gets where it needs to go along the Birdsville Track in the far north of South Australia, as he goes about his work.

After much deliberation, the Trak CineCentre has selected this feature documentary as part of it's Australia Day programme, as it demonstrates and pays tribute to the ingenuity and hard work of the people who built Australia up into the country you now know.

The Back of Beyond was originally released on 16mm film in Adelaide on May 5 1954, going on to be included in the Sydney Film Festival in June 1954, and in Marree, Tom's home town, in July 1954. The 16mm format enabled it to be screened further and wider than just the traditional cinema environment, which commonly used 35mm film equipment. The Trak CineCentre is pleased to be able to present an original 16mm film print of The Back of Beyond, which also marks the first return of film to the Trak's screens since it ceased being the standard for cinema distribution in 2013.

For further reading, please take a look at The Last Mail from Birdsville and also, The Birdwood Motor Museum, where Tom's Leyland Badger is on display.

This current programme covers session times occurring between January 16 2020 and January 22 2020. The Trak CineCentre will be open on Mondays for the duration of the School Holidays (Monday December 16 to Monday January 27).

Ricky and his family have been fighting an uphill struggle against debt since the 2008 global financial crisis. An opportunity to wrestle back some independence appears with a shiny new van and the chance to run a franchise as a self-employed delivery driver. It's hard work, and his wife's job as a carer is no easier. The family unit is strong but when both are pulled in different directions everything comes to breaking point.

A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavouring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they've chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek.
