I do hate continually being bombarded with advertising saying that it is"Australian" to have beers on Australia Day. You like drinking beer? awesome! good for you. But there is nothing inherently 'Australian' about it and it is incredibly offensive to suggest that people who don't get drunk are somehow 'un-Australian'. If being a drunken idiot is part of the Australian Identity then I can see why so many people identify as"un-Australian"

I totally agree. The meaning of Australia day is forgotten. I will admit that there is a very strong drinking culture in Australia though.

I would agree totally with what you are saying. They focus on the worst groups and the people with the most alcohol and make it seem like everyone is doing it. I would say more people are not out getting drunk on this day than are getting drunk.

As an American I honestly thought this was all you folks did on Australian Day. It's like how we view Oktoberfest and St. Patrick's Day here.

Some people still believe in the history of holidays and actually celebrate them remembering that history.

There should be more directors interested in the truth and the real heritage like this one. So many just shoot the regular popular antics so that they can get good ratings. For once a film with substance, something that can stand the test of time and stand out.

Some fascinating projects emerged as Australians in Film announced that four big names will mentor four rising talents in Los Angeles over the next year.

What is the origin of Australia Day? Is it like our 4th of July?
