Srila Prabhupada had many very successful preaching engagements during his visits to Australia, however this was not the case at Melbourne's Latrobe University.
The Australian ISKCON devotees organized a speaking engagement for Prabhupada at Latrobe University but this was a time when there were a lot of communist agitators and born again Christians at the university.
So Srila Prabhupada attempted to explain the science of Krishna consciousness to the students however there were many interruptions by communists and one particular born again Christian, who was getting quite a bit of support and encouragement from the audience.
Overall this was a very unfavorable audience and put Srila Prabhupada and the devotees into a very difficult position.
Apparently there were actual physical fights also between the devotees and agitators outside the hall, we do not have that on the film.
So this is a very interesting documentary about a not so successful preaching engagement.
