The Great Australian Dreaming
  About the Australian dream of home ownership.
  54 min, SBS-TV, 1992

THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN DREAMING puts aboriginal perspectives at the centre of a discussion about the great Australian dream of home ownership. It deconstructs the dream, asking what really drives it. The film also attacks the speculative mentality that drives the property market. Good times for the investor mean bad times for the first home buyer and those on lower incomes. It suggests that the tax regime directs too much unproductive investment into real estate. This is a layered film that looks at both the economics and the mythology of home ownership.
