Where Are You Really From?
Comedian Michael Hing (The Feed) grew tired of people asking him, “Where are you from?” His family migrated to Australia from China more than 100 years ago, so it was an annoying question that was hard to answer. This thoughtful and playful series explores how migrant families in regional areas deal with the pervasive question as Hing gets to know the community and hears their stories. Tonight, he is in Woolgoolga, NSW, which has a population of 4500 people. It is home to the country’s largest regional settlement of Sikhs and the community was founded by migrant banana farmers from India before Federation.
