To Commemorate Anzac Day we are screening They Shall Not Grow Old preceded by the short film Harry's War. Head over to territorytribute.com.au for many more more events taking place in the Top End.
A story of mateship, brothers in arms and friendship that embraces culture, war and death. Harry and Mitch are two mates who go off to fight in the jungles of Papua New Guinea during World War II. Harry is a Koorie and Mitch a non-Aboriginal Australian. In the story, we see Harry grow from a boy in uniform to a man in war. We watch as he learns of his impending death and how he faces it. HARRY'S WAR is about when mateship transcends race, cultural differences and societal barriers. It is a story of how war drives men to the brink and the journey becomes more important than the journey's end.
THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD
The documentary is an extraordinary and unique look back at WW1, using never-before-seen film footage captured at the time and narrated by British survivors of the war. Employing state-of-the-art technology to transform audio and moving image archive footage more than a century old, Peter Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell the story of World War I: the men who were there. Driven by a personal interest in the conflict, Jackson sets out to explore the day-to-day experience of its combatants.
