The Screen Guide

A journey of hope, a journey which took 40 years to realise, a lifelong dream — the remarkable story of Guiseppe Mercuri, Italian artist, writer and communist. Guiseppe Mercuri dreamed of migrating to Australia in the 1950s but was refused entry on account of his communist party membership. Nephew Franco di Chiera documents his long awaited trip to Australia.
