The story of ETERNITY provides a unique perspective on our national identity.
Through the arts, music, opera, literature, film, graffiti, religion, hospitality and capital works, this word features in key moments and at major turning points in Australia's recent history dating back over 85 years ... and is set to continue well into the future.
In 2000, Sydney announced ETERNITY to the world at the Millennium Fireworks and in the 2000 Olympic Games.
Since then, many public works featuring ETERNITY have been created and the word has been embraced in every state in Australia.
This film begins in 2000 and goes back to 1932 when ETERNITY was first written by Sydney eccentric, Arthur Stace ... in the same year as the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
It revisits major historical events of the 20th Century that led to ETERNITY being embraced, celebrates how this word continues to be used today, and looks forward to the future of ETERNITY across Australia and around the world.
