Once upon a time in Cabramatta ( Visual )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Once upon a time in Cabramatta is the untold story of how the Vietnamese community overcame the odds and found their place in multicultural Australia. The story begins with the landmark decision of Prime Minister Fraser to open Australia's doors to thousands of refugees at the end of the Vietnam War. It is a moment in history that finally buries the infamous White Australia Policy and transforms a nation. The years that follow are as dramatic as they are turbulent; a people struggling to find their place in a foreign land. In this one tiny Sydney suburb, the 80s and 90s see the arrival of street gangs, a heroin epidemic and the first political assassination in Australia's history. The Vietnamese people are vilified and demonised. Cabramatta it seems represents all that is wrong with Asian immigration. What's more the community exist against a political backdrop that is fractured, the universal support for multiculturalism a distant memory. But as the century draws to a close there is a remarkable turnaround. The Vietnamese people finally find their voice, speaking up to claim their rightful, democratic place in their adopted home. Cabramatta is a community transformed. Australia, a continent changed forever

"Every year millions of refugees escape civil war and human rights violations in search of a new homeland. Roughly 13,000 are accepted into Australia. But what happens once they arrive? This intimate documentary, filmed with the cooperation of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the Australian government's resettlement agencies, looks at two refugee families hoping for a fresh start on safer shores. For the ethnic Karen family from Burma, so much is startling - suburbs that seem to be for cars not people, too many clothes to choose from, automatic teller machines, and chickens wrapped in plastic. But learning English in 510 hours of government paid lessons is proving the biggest challenge. Constance Okat and her extended family came to Australia after fleeing civil war in Sudan. For Constance, the task is trying to reunite all the members of her family that have been separated for over ten years. She is also trying to challenge the notion that refugees do not assimilate in Australian society"--Website
