Limetree Studios’ latest film is a journey of discovery into the world of our modern returned veterans.
All too often, it’s a world of shadows, doubt, pain and isolation. A world of darkness and depression, of PTSD and unresolved mental issues. A world where homeless looms. a world where suicide lurks.
THE HOME FRONT will allow our vets to tell their own stories (anonymously where necessary). They will be supplemented by the stories of their families and loved ones. And their problems will be examined by experts and illustrated with real examples.
Our vets are tragically over-represented in our homeless and our suicides. One in every 20 of Australia’s homeless is a veteran. Ex-servicemen under 30 have a suicide rate more than twice that of the national average.
THE HOME FRONT will aim to educate Australians on the plight of our veterans. It will try to show the veteran community that they are not alone in facing their many issues. It will act as a beacon to foster collaboration between veterans, ex-service organisations, government, the corporate world and the broader community.
