A FILM telling the story of the British child migration scheme will be the latest big-screen project to spruik South Australia as a tourist destination. Oranges and Sunshine will tell the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham who uncovered a stolen generation of children who were transported in the 1950s from orphanages in Britain to Australia where lodging was cheaper. In the late 1980s Humphreys reunited families and brought worldwide attention to the story. Oranges and Sunshine is among the latest projects to be approved for funding from Screen Australia and already names including British actress Emily Watson have been tipped for the lead role with Australian actors Hugo Weaving and David Wenham among the rumoured co-stars. The South Australian Government is understood to have also chipped in for the film, which will follow other projects shot in the state, including the Cannes Camera d’Or winning Samson & Delilah, Rachel Ward’s directorial debut Beautiful Kate and the yet-to-be-released Scott Hicks film The Boys are Back. The film is an initiative of See Saw Films, a company formed last year by the Sydney producer Emile Sherman (co-producer of Candy) and focusing on Australian and British co-productions. The story of the migration scheme was also dramatised in the 1992 television mini-series The Leaving of Liverpool.
