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.

'Putting a Brave Face on It'

Many soldiers returned from the war as changed men. For some, their scars were a visible reminder of the horrors they endured; for others, their scars were on the 'inside'. For Gordon Wallace, his physical scars became an inescapable part of his identity, returning home a very different person to the fresh-faced young man who left. His wife Evelyn bore the brunt of his frustrations and disappointment.
