Description

This documentary introduces an Australian Lebanese family. Keysar and Hanifeh Trad have nine children and live in the Australian suburb of South West Sydney. Recent international and local events, such as the Bali Bombings and the Cronulla Riots, have seen difficult times for Muslim minorities. Against this backdrop, Keysar Trad has become an increasingly well-known spokesperson for the Lebanese Muslim community in Sydney. His association, as advisor and translator, with the contentious mufti, Sheik Taj el-Din Al Hilaly, has placed him in the national spotlight. In this documentary we follow the Trads through some of their daily family events: a family gathering, a graduation ceremony, and a day at the beach, and, in so doing, address issues such as cultural identity, stereotyping and racism.
