Australia's Open


Through the lens of this unique fourteen-day tennis slam Australia’s Open unpacks the complex journey Australia has navigated to its current standing on the international stage. Examining the events that have shaken and shaped it both on and off the court the film will reveal how the evolution of the event has mirrored Australia’s own journey as a nation, from poor colonial cousin to a mature and confident world player.
