Identity, belonging and passion: a working-class footy club and the people at its heart.

Port Adelaide Football Club is one of the world’s oldest and most successful sporting clubs, celebrating 150 years in 2020. Love it or hate it, the club has become an integral part of the history of Adelaide people. Share the passionate first-hand accounts from players and one-eyed supporters who bleed for the club. Local director Nicole Miller (mentored by Justin Kurzel) became immersed in the world of footy and the Port Adelaide Football Club. She recently directed a series The AFL Show explaining the sport to a Chinese audience and local production company 57 Films has been at the heart of Port’s ambitious push into China. 2020 brings unprecedented challenges, but the Port always rises to a challenge, and undying connection of the Port Adelaide community, passed down to each new generation, underpins the resilience that the club needs to adapt and survive. This is a universal story about belonging to your tribe and to something bigger than yourself. More than simply a football game, this is a story about what it means to belong. Like a hip-and-shoulder from Travis Boak, it will have a big impact on you. Go Port!
