BREAD AND DRIPPING (1982)


17 minute documentary from Wimmins Films

Film by Vic Smith, Margot Nash, Elizabeth Schaffer, Donna Foster and Wendy Brady

 

In BREAD AND DRIPPING, four women recount their lives during the bleak years of the economic depression of the 1930s. Tibby Whalan, Eileen Pittman, Beryl Armstrong and Mary Wright describe their struggles to survive and maintain families when faced with widespread unemployment, evictions and hardship.

 

The film makes extensive use of archival footage and photographs from the 1930s to present a fascinating insight into the lives of women in Australia. The title, Bread and Dripping, refers to a meal of leftover fat soaked in bread and eaten when no other food is available.
