New England Australia Films - Sons of Matthew: introduction

This photo from the State Library of Queensland is a location shot for the filming of Sons of Matthew. From left to right: L. R. Rolston, Elsa Chauvel, Charles Chauvel, A. Rolston and J. Rolston.

Sons of Matthew was set in south eastern Queensland just across the border from New England. However, the film begins in New England and combines many different elements of New England history.

Just as a break from current events and more serious stuff, I am still depressed from Depression about indigenous policy - and a challenge to North Coast Voices , I thought that it might be interesting to use the film as an example to explore different elements of New England.
