Avantdale Bowling Club ‘Home’

Written by on February 12, 2019

For this week’s Local Eyes video, we have picked something a little different. Avantdale Bowling Club ‘Home’ video is a short documentary that deconstructs the concept of home. Produced by Tom Scott & Hearken Films cinematography by Benjamin Bryan edited by Caitlin Bryan titles by Elliot Walsh Thanks to the Wetnhiak family, Yarra Youth Centre, Dead On Sound

“Siri will tell you that home is ‘a place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household’ yet the main subject of this short documentary does not fit that criteria. Gum Wetnhiak was displaced from what he knew as home as a child. With his brothers and mother, he immigrated as a refugee from war-torn South Sudan in 2003 to start a new life in post-colonial Australia. In this piece, Gum takes us through a day in his life and into his new home in the Collingwood commission flats while constructing for us his own definition of home. We would like to send our most sincere thanks to Gum and the entire Wetnhiak family for their time.”
