Facing World War One: Stories of loyalty, loss and love
December 9 - April 16 | 10:00am - 5:00pm| Free
Featuring new work by Facing Australia, experience intimate and untold stories from the First World War that reveal the daily reality and emotional impact on the loved ones left behind in Brisbane.
Tracing letters sent from the front line through the War Office to back home, Facing World War One: Stories of loyalty, loss and love captures the poignant voices of the family and loved ones of enlisted soldiers. From the touching account of a hopeful mother in search for news of her missing son, to a wife’s plea to have her husband return home, discover first-hand the real relationships shaken by the trials of war.
Combined with compelling accounts from Brisbane poets and performers who served in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF), these deeply moving stories unfold in a filmic and multi-sensory journey exploring the human impact of the war that changed the world irrevocably.
Marking the 100th anniversary of the first Anzac Day Parade in Brisbane, encounter loyalty to country and family, unimaginable loss, and the endurance of love in Facing World War One.
