Texts in the City: One Night the Moon

Our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life. This week, we delve into One Night the Moon, Rachel Perkins' 2001 film set in the Australian outback. Our guides are host Tony Birch and guest Kaarin Fairfax.
