Immigration Nation
AACTA nominated documentary aired on SBS network

A landmark series that explores Australia's untold immigration story; a century long struggle to overcome the White Australia Policy that resulted in one of the world's most multicultural nations. It dissects a paradox fundamental to the creation of the Australian nation.
