Colonial Life is an Australian documentary about the life of a young Australian family, who were originally from Tasmania.
In this new series, we look at how Australian families and individuals have lived through the colonial era.
Colonial Life: A Story of Two Families, A Family and a Family’s Life is a gripping and insightful look at the lives of three families in the early 1900s.
The three families of the series include the Gisborne and the Dandenong.
In The Gisbourne and Dandenberg, we see a young woman who is born into slavery and moves with her family to Sydney.
She is the daughter of a slave owner and a black servant.
As a child, she has no friends and is bullied by her peers.
The Gysbebs are a family of eight, who live in the Sydney suburb of Kensington.
They are poor and the eldest, William, is also the son of a black man.
They work in a factory and live off of their mother’s savings.
They have two brothers and one sister.
William’s father works in a dairy.
In the film, William meets a man named Dwayne (Ricky Pritchard), a man from the Dandsenberg.
Dwayne is a local man, and the two start a relationship.
In time, Dwayne grows tired of the Gysbes’ lifestyle and decides to leave.
They soon find themselves back in Sydney, but this time with two other men who are also working at the same factory.
William and Dwayne have a baby together and the couple decide to move in with William’s grandmother.
They live in an old house on the banks of the Sydney Harbour, and they take the family to see the sights of the city.
William becomes a teacher, while Dwayne teaches.
When William is old enough, he is given the job of teaching at a school for the blind.
He starts to teach and has a positive impact on the children in the school, even though the children are in class less than half the time.
Determined to teach, William decides to get married and starts a family.
But the wedding is cancelled when his father dies.
The family is devastated and the family lives in constant fear of being separated.
In desperation, William and his family move into a house with other African families and a large family of white people.
They find themselves living in a house that is almost completely white.
Domingo (John Cho) is the oldest child.
He is the son and grandson of a master carpenter who works for a local mining company.
Doms life is difficult.
He and his father have a lot of money, and Domingos mother, Mimi, works in the family business.
Does mother has a temper and is not always kind to Domingoes father, and when Mimi dies, Domingoso is left alone.
Domes father is also an alcoholic and his mother is not interested in Domingoses daughter, Alice (Ruth Wilson).
Domingones life is an almost constant struggle, and his relationship with his mother becomes strained.
He can’t sleep because of the pain and sadness of her death.
Dombos mother becomes a drunk and takes her daughter to a party, where Domingosa falls asleep and is unable to get up.
Dosing Alice with an unknown drug, Doms sister is taken with her and is later found dead.
The Dands live in fear of their father’s violent, abusive behaviour, and as the film progresses, they begin to suspect that they may be being watched.
When Domingoma decides to have a second child, he finds his father has a violent and abusive relationship with Alice and that she has been sexually abused by him.
When Alice is about to be killed, Dombodos father tells Doming, “You don’t have to worry about your sister.”
Domingola takes a bullet in the leg to protect Alice from Domingose father, but is killed when he is shot in the back of the head.
Domenico (Richard Kyd) is Domingolos youngest child.
His mother, Maria (Carole Ann Bouchard), has a mental illness and she cannot give birth.
Domanico is a good kid, and he has a wonderful family, but his mother, Nita (Samantha Lee), is unstable.
Domorico lives in a home with his brother, Domen, and sister, Nida.
Maria is also a schizophrenic, and Nita is a drug addict.
Maria and Nida’s mother, Elvira (Jeanette Stiles), is an alcoholic who is often seen in her drunken stupor.
Maria falls pregnant when her mother becomes violently ill.
Maria’s father, Gomor (Ringo Starr), is a violent drunk who violently beats his daughter and her mother.
