Parramatta Foundations Mini-Doco Series
2020 has been a year for the history books, kind of makes you wonder about your role in the grand scheme of things. The City of Parramatta, Australia’s second oldest city, has certainly been asking those same sort of questions and together with comedian and filmmaker Dan Ilic, they’ve put together a short documentary series exploring Parramatta’s origin right back through prehistoric times, First Nations peoples, and the trials of early settlers. There are six episodes, only around five minutes each, both informative and funny and celebrating Foundation Day in Parramatta.
Sean Britten from The Daily caught up with Dan to talk about what we kind find in the series and putting it all together.
