POZIERES

pozieres

Australia / 2000 / 52 min / Digital

Director : Wain Fimeri

 

Festival Le bout du monde, Pézenas 2017

In 1916, during the Great War, Pozières, a tiny village in Northern France,  becomes the site for an insane battle. The village is stormed and captured by Australians. In less than seven weeks, they will suffer twenty three thousand casualties for this tiny patch of earth. This film takes the viewer back in time. The camera finds young men in the fields and trenches of France, railway carriages in Egypt, and the beautiful Australian bush. We meet their families in the parlours of small cottages and rowdy public meetings in Australia.
