An ANZAC Films by Starlight special presented by Hutt City Council.

Made by Turkish director Tolga Örnek, this acclaimed film’s subject is the 1915 Gallipoli campaign in World War I. A point of difference is that it is narrated by people representing both sides of the catastrophic battle. Dramatisations, restored film, interviews with experts, and poignant reading from letters and diaries (Sam Neill and Jeremy Irons for the ANZAC and British forces and Zafer Ergin for the Turks) personalises the experience of the carnage. Urban Cinefile described the international co-production as a "potent and magnificent documentary".

People are encouraged to grab a rug and their family or friends and head down to Dowse Square for a 6.30pm start. This film is free. Food and drink will be available for sale.

Please bring low seating. No dogs allowed.
