Ties That Bind: Kriv Stenders' "Australia Day" and the Problems of Patriotism

Zoe Wallin

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Following three individuals whose paths entwine over a twelve-hour period, Kriv Stenders' film exposes the hardships and harsh realities that continue to afflict those who are deemed minorities within Australian society. Taking aim at the contentious national holiday of its title, Australia day uses plot and character to Polemicise - but perhaps at the expense of a well-told story.
