Always a Visitor (2000)


A personal journey by 30-year-old Turkish Australian Muslim Kuranda Seyit. He discusses his relationship with his father and his siblings, and talks about growing up in Emu Plains in Western Sydney. At the time he was called a 'wog’ at school. Now he teaches in a Muslim school.

Curator’s notes

An interesting look at issues of cultural and religious difference in Australia. The film speaks with a simple truthfulness as Kuranda addresses camera. Kuranda’s father is also very open about his feelings.
