Celebrating diversity and our multicultural identity through film…
The Australian Stories Primary Schools DVD is a selection of short films that focus on social inclusion, harmony and celebrate the diversity of the Australian identity. The films are especially selected for primary school children, and are classified ‘G’.
We offer the films in DVD format, so it’s easy for you to screen at school venues. In addition to the films we also provide an activity book that allows the students to further explore the films through individual and group activities.
Sosefina by Tresa Ponnor (14 minutes) – Sosefina escapes her big, loud, annoying Samoan family and their rundown house to spend the day in a display home instead of going to school. In the process of her adventure she discovers the love she has for her family.
Play Lunch by Cassandra Nguyen (10 minutes) – Shy, little Molly is determined to finish her big lunch before the siren sounds. While the other kids have already eaten and are off having fun, Molly watches on, still eating. During lunch, an encounter between Molly and a new friend brings the possibility of food, footy & friendship.
Show and Tell by Haidar Noor (7 minutes) – A collection of stories from migrants and refugees residing in Australia. Through the use of nostalgia and memory the documentary explores the process of migration and how we as human beings establish relationship with objects in order to help us have contact with the past.
