Still image from the film Gallipoli
In Western Australia in 1915 two young men enlist to fight in WWI. Archy Hamilton (Mark Lee) is enthusiastic and patriotic, while Frank Dunne (Mel Gibson) has no great desire to fight in a war in which he believes Australia has no place. The two become best mates and after training in Egypt, they land at Gallipoli, Turkey, just as the allied assaults of August 1915 are about to begin. The film has become the most influential representation of the nationalist Anzac myth, combining innocence and sacrifice, youthful high spirits and brutal, industrialized murder. (35mm presentation)

WWI: 100 Years Removed

As we mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, this multi-semester film series explores the conditions leading up to war, the harsh realities of wartime, and its effects on people and nations around the world. These cinematic reflections offer a chance to revisit the way war and violence were imagined in an earlier age, and also remind us how men and women throughout the globe remain burdened by this problem today. Each film will be introduced by a faculty expert. This film series is presented by the School of Global and International Studies and IU Cinema.
