1920s. Australia is at the height of the European immigration and Italians are declared ‘alien’ and widely ostracised from Australian life. A small Italian family, the Ariottos have barely sustained a horrific tragedy. In addition to the hard physical labour suffered throughout the harsh central Queensland summers harvesting sugar cane and the merciless racism endured within the township, Catarina (28) has lost her husband. Her two sons, Louis (9) and Sisto (7) have lost their father to tuberculosis just months before their planned return to Italy.

Catarina is forced to look for work wherever she can. No stranger to hard work however, she turns out her home to boarders, takes up seamstressing and stops at nothing to tirelessly ensure her sons have the best education afforded.

Catarina weaves worlds for her children through her gift for storytelling, her faith, and her knack for approaching life through a lens of hope, grit and determination shields the boys from much of the hostility of their surrounding, and allows them to experience truth and comfort amidst their pain.

The 15min excerpt from the life and times of Catarina Ariotti offers a small glimpse into the life of a phenomenal woman and tells of her endurance, love and sacrifice, ensuring the best life for her sons, no matter the cost.


All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
