A passionate love story set against a background of post-war European immigration into Australia is the theme of Silver City, an extremely handsome production which introduces vibrant new actress Gosia Dobrowolska.

She plays Nina, a young Polish girl who arrives, bereaved and alone, in Australia in 1948 and becomes one of thousands of citizens of so-called Silver City, a migrant camp outside Sydney. There she meets a fellow Pole, Julian, a former law student, and falls in love with him although he’s married to one of her best friends.

This is a film for anyone who has ever left the country of their birth to start a new life in a strange land.

The background to this affair is vividly etched in. Director Sophia Turkiewicz, came to Australia from Poland aged three with her mother, which has provided her with rich material for her first feature.
