Made for the Department of Immigration, this film looks at Sydney through the eyes of migrants who have made the city their home.
The 1970s Viewpoint series – which includes other cities like Brisbane, Hobart, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne – can be seen as a counterpoint to the 1960s Life In Australia series that showed these cities strictly through the official voice of government.
These earlier films may well have been the introductory films that these migrants viewed before they came to Australia.
Made by Film Australia, 1975. Directed by Arch Nicholson.
