Using just a tiny fraction of the vast and often forgotten heritage of 8mm home movies, this 13-part documentary series is a private record of Australia. Each five-minute episode uses the home movie footage of an individual or family to tell the small stories that fill in the gaps of our formal history. Colourful, intimate, detailed, and occasionally out of focus, Homemade History celebrates amateur filmmakers and their remarkable library of memories.

In the 1990s, a loose-knit group of American artists and creators, many just out of their teens, began their careers. Influenced by the popular underground youth subcultures of the day, artists like Shepard Fairey, Mark Gonzales, Spike Jonze, Margaret Kilgallen, Mike Mills, Harmony Korine, and Ed Templeton began to create art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Many had no formal training and almost no conception of the inner workings of the art world, learning their craft through practice, trial and error, and good old-fashioned innovation.
