    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.

    'On the Margins'

    Samuel Tongway was born in Australia, the son of Chinese immigrants. Along with thousands of young Australian men, he felt it was his duty to enlist and serve his country. In 1916, he signed up and was sent to Maygar Barracks in Broadmeadows to commence his training. Shortly after arriving, he was told his services would not be needed as he was not of 'sufficient European blood'.
