    Bringing Our Stories Home is a series of six short films to commemorate the ANZAC Centenary. It explores the untold stories of the First World War, focusing specifically on the impact felt at home in Australia, and the lasting effects of the war that shaped a nation.

    Produced and directed by some of Victoria's brightest emerging filmmakers, the series offers a surprising insight into stories that were intrinsically linked to the war but were unfolding far from the battlefields.

    Combining both documentary and dramatised elements, these entertaining, revealing and moving short films explore the nature of memory, commemoration and celebration over the period of a century, and themes from food shortages to racially discriminatory soldier selection to the establishment of Luna Park.

    'Economic Conscription'

    Adela Pankhurst. Feminist. Journalist. Communist. Anti-war activist. And, to the Australian prime minister, a 'little devil'. Daughter of celebrated suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, Adela migrated to Australia in 1914 and took a lead role in inciting protests against food shortages in Melbourne during the war before becoming one of the founding members of the Australian Communist Party.
