The Campaign

Campaign

In this highly acclaimed documentary, for the first time the anatomy of a federal election campaign was laid bare; the logistics, the traveling, the locations, the schedule.  For the full 35 days of the 1996 campaign, Santo Cilauro with a Hi8 camera had unprecedented access to follow Paul Keating, his entourage and the media circus across Australia.

The result - a fascinating analysis of both the Australian political machinery and the electronic media in action while campaigning for the nation's highest office.
