Friday May 12th – Australia “Rice”
Synopsis: Rice by Michele Lee explores the role of two Australian women of Asian heritage and their roles in the business of global food production. Nisha, a late 20s second generation Australian Indian is the Executive Officer of Golden Fields, Australia’s biggest rice company. Yvette, an older Chinese woman and cleaner at the same office is trying to connect with her daughter whose experience growing up in Australia is far removed from her own. The relationship that forms between these women is one that reveals the complexity of the Australian identity.
