Mateship In… Film

From the earliest silent movies Los Angeles studios have been the backdrop to films that continue to entertain Australians. But right from those early days our love of cinema hasn’t been a one-way street. Aussies have made the trek across the Pacific sharing their talent and expertise since the 1930s. Today our star continues to shine as our actors and directors collaborate across the two continents.


A landmark 60 minute special exploring the special relationship between Australia and the USA.

For a century the United States of America and Australia have fought together in every major conflict, one of the longest alliances in modern history. Hosted by acclaimed Australian journalist Mike Munro this documentary and featurettes will explore our long friendship, forged in battle, shaped also by deep exchanges of ideas, art, people and trade.

This is a fascinating and entertaining story of trust, difference, loyalty and respect: it’s an epic story of Mateship.
