Rob Stich’s ‘The Castle’ is satire about a family’s fight to keep their home after the global force, Airlink, threatens to expand its runways, on the Kerrigan’s land, to increase their market share. The film portrays the imbalanced conflict between an Aussie battler and powerful multinational interests. Comparatively, Dave Carroll’s ‘United Breaks Guitars’ is a YouTube clip is about a band whose leader singer’s $3500 Taylor guitar was broken by the baggage handlers at United, the world’s largest airline.

In the article Skiing into oblivion that appeared in a weekly metropolitan magazine in March 2008, writer Paul Evans tackles the ongoing issue of our planet’s extravagant use of our natural resources, and how we are becoming increasingly motivated by the need to attain unrealistic lifestyles driven by consumerism. A concerned and passionate Evans appeals to our sense of fear, relying on emotive language, generalisations and anecdotal evidence to convince his audience that we must do something now, rather than ‘tomorrow’.
