Director Statement

Nuestras Voces is the first documentary in Australia giving voice to the early generations of Latin American and Spanish migrants in Victoria, Australia.
It’s important to hear and connect with the stories of these early migrants to understand their contribution to such a young and diverse country like Australia and to generate empathy for migrants all around the world.

Little has been known of the Latin American migrants and this film helps to honour and learn from their resilience stories.

This film was made during Covid-19 restrictions in the most locked-down city in the world: Melbourne. Despite the challenges this brought, it was important to bring it alive and adapt to the world we’re living in today.
