A Place Called Robertson, Southern Highlands

This is a trailer from a new doco about the village of Robertson, Southern Highlands, in the same shire as Bundanoon where I live, and which is quite similar. The trailer stresses the quirky old characters, the fog, the new creatives, and the remaining community spirit despite rapid suburbanisation. Unfortunately it leaves out the latter, the very common parochialism and nimbyism with regard to local issues and threats, and the perennial issues of class, of rich and poor. The Hollywood movie ‘Babe’ (about a little pig) was filmed in Robertson.
