The Slim Dusty Movie
Journey back to an Australia of country showgrounds, irrepressible bush larrikins, long trains and ever-rolling trucks, paddocks of ripened wheat and kegs of amber fluid. Welcome to the world of Slim Dusty. Every year the fans waited for his travelling country band, from Alice springs to Sydney, from Cunnamulla to Gundagai -- and he never disappointed them. Filmed over 20,000 kilometres in a variety of frontier towns, truck stops, rodeo arenas and concert halls, The Slim Dusty Movie is a film experience like no other. Combining nostalgic historical recreations exhilarating concert scenes and on-the-road candid footage with the man himself, this big screen adventure spans 50 years in the life of a remarkable performer who was known the world over as 'The Man Who Is Australia.’
