Many Roads

A film by Wind and Sky productions. For full details about this film, visit their website: https://windsky.com.au/many-roads-stories-of-the-chinese-o…/

In the 1850s tens of thousands of Chinese people flocked to Victoria, joining the peoples from all nations who came here chasing the lure of gold.

Fleeing violence, famine and poverty in their homeland Chinese goldseekers sought fortune for their families in the place they called ‘New Gold Mountain’. Chinese gold miners were discriminated against and shunned by Europeans. Despite this they carved out lives in this strange new land.

This short documentary explores the story of Chinese people in the Victorian gold rush, uncovering the routes the Chinese took to seek gold, the lives they lived and the sort of people they were.

This film forms part of the Many Roads story on the Culture Victoria website: https://cv.vic.gov.au/stories/immigra

 

 


Harbour Lights

‘Harbour Lights’ was recently launched at the Mission to Seafarers in Melbourne. It is a wonderful story about a pioneering women’s network called the Ladies Harbour Lights Guild and how they connected with the lives of seafarers in the First World War.
