Episode 6 – The Princess and the Bird

The Princess and the Bird explores heartfelt comparisons of the immigration experience through the narrative of Maria and Helen. Helen’s family came from Greece in the 1960′s, fleeing the occupation of their island village by the Italian army; Maria, a Samoan Princess, was sent away from her tribe as a child to find a better life.

Meet Helen and Maria.

At its heart, Meet+Eat celebrates diversity. Throughout the series, we explore the charming and compelling stories of people from two of Australia’s most culturally rich and diverse regions: Hume in Victoria and South Western Sydney – where you can walk down the street and meet the world.
