Shooey’s Little World (1984)


Keith and Gladys Shoesmith live in the country with their six children. This observational documentary explores all aspects of their daily life – from economics to sociology.

Curator’s notes

The film is an interesting insight into family life for the battler. The Shoesmiths only have Keith’s wage to live on. Director Ray Sinclair has created a very insightful film.
