Abstract:

AusAID scholarship students are generally returning to study after being in the workforce, so in addition to culture shock, they have to deal with separation from their families as they embark on further education. Nita Ryarti from Jakarta arrives in Australia without her family. She tries to settle in and get on top of her assessments for her Masters in Development Planning early so when her family joins her, she can spend time helping them adjust. Her husband soon arrives with their two children, but Nita does not know if her husband will agree to stay on in Australia or return to Indonesia for the duration of her two-year degree course. She may have to juggle being a single mother as well as her studies. Nita finds she learns more from her university studies than she ever thought she would. Fellow Indonesian AusAID scholarship recipient Muhammad Arsyad is a qualified teacher who has come to Australia from a small rural village on Lombok, a neighbouring island to Bali, Indonesia Muhammad is undertaking a Master in Applied Linguistics, and his wife will be moving to Australia with their three children for the duration of his studies. As a devout Muslim there is a number of cultural barriers Muhammad and his newly arrived family will have to negotiate if it is all going to work out for each of them. A Film Australia National Interest Program in association with Big Island Pictures and the Pacific Film and Television Commission. Produced in association with SBS Independent. Executive Producer: Penny Robins Producer: Mark Chapman Director: Randall Wood, Phoebe Hart, Suzanne Howard Writer: Suzanne Howard, Phoebe Hart DOP/Cinematographer: Craig Lucas Narrator/Presenter: Deborah Mailman.
