Struggle Street

3 x 1 hr

Poverty and social disadvantage are things we usually associate with the Third World. But in areas of western Sydney - on the margins of Australia’s most affluent city - thousands of families and individuals are struggling to get by.

In this 3-part observational-documentary series filmed over a six- month period in Sydney’s Mt Druitt area, we go beyond the tabloid headlines and into the lives of a cross-section of residents living in some of our most disadvantaged communities. Through their stories and voices we shed a light on a range of complex issues – from housing and employment, to problems of addiction and family breakdown - and witness the triumphs and joys that still emerge despite sometimes overwhelming odds.
