The Screen Guide

Poverty and social disadvantage are things we usually associate with the Third World. But in areas of western Sydney - on the margins of Australia’s most affluent city - thousands of families and individuals are struggling to get by. In this 3-part observational-documentary series to be filmed over a six- month period, we’ll go beyond the tabloid headlines and into the lives of a cross-section of residents living in some of the most under-resourced communities in the Mt Druitt area. Through their stories and voices, we’ll shed a light on a range of complex issues – from housing and employment, to problems of addiction and family breakdown. But against that backdrop of disadvantage, we’ll also witness the triumphs and joys that still emerge despite overwhelming odds.
