Watch Avantdale Bowling Club's Video 'Home'

Friday 8th February, 2019 9:17AM

Tom Scott's acclaimed Avantdale Bowling Club have lifted the lid on the the third and final video release from the star-studded jazz-rap project's self-titled debut album, a short documentary produced by Scott and Hearken Films set to the sounds of their track 'Home'. The new clip reflects on the song's theme via presenting a portrait of the daily life of Gum Wetnhiak, a refugee from war-torn South Sudan whose family immigrated to Australia in 2003. 'Home' features interviews with Wetnhiak and his family talking about their new life, along with imagery of their Collingwood, Melbourne home and grainy film footage of the life they left behind. Read Tom Scott's words on the documentary and experience it below...

"The function of this work is to deconstruct the concept of home.

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 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."

Avantdale Bowling Club's self-titled debut album is out digitally now, and on double vinyl via Cosmic Compositions.
