Life at the Rustic
(Documentary film portrait –
‘The Rustic’ is a caravan park like no other – hidden off the beaten track in the Shoalhaven hinterland, it is home for a community of crusty men. Too old to work, too young to die, the men at ‘the Rustic’, surf, fish, make home-brew and live as best they can – with each other and the abundant local kangaroos and bush-ticks. Life at the Rustic is an intimate documentary portrait about a community of aging men, living on the fringes in regional Australia, trying to make sense of bush fires, COVID 19 and life in the 21st Century.
