A Why Documentaries Production.

Why Documentaries is interested in producing stories which instil a sense of place and community pride. Other projects currently in production include Digital stories with Barnardos Orphanage Boys, people experiencing a mental illness and the Lake Illawarra Residents, Dementia Care for Multicultural Groups and other important stories.

We have been humbled to be involved in the History of the Coal mining community in the Illawarra and feel privileged to be able to tell their stories.
