From 1998 to 2004 over 500 young people were asked to tell stories about when they felt “not at home”. The Knot at Home project films present their stories using interview, narratives, vignettes, songs, animations, dramatised scenes and memories.

The unique style of these films is created by allowing the story tellers to be hands on, mentored by experienced film makers in the process of filming, performing, writing and editing.

The story tellers have visited and revisited their stories over a period of seven years. And so the audience becomes privy to them growing up, and to the changes that occur in the way they feel about ,and convey their experiences. Directly to camera, they openly express the personal struggles of their lives.

Narratives, songs, stories, vignettes of memory ; images from young people and their families from across Australia.......about the needs that we all have: survival, security, love, status, curiosity, beauty, realisation, transcendence.......about unravelling the knots in family matters. Stories from the isolated across the divides in Australian society: child/parent, rural/city, indigenous, refugee, detainee, prisoner. Stories from the places where people struggle to survive rather than struggle to create.
