Revelation Perth International Film Festival in association with Cinema Australia proudly present a celebration of Australian film – past present and future – through a program of monthly screenings.
One of the great Australian films, Peter Weir’s Gallipoli is a sprawling story of mate-ship, loyalty and national identity. It also marks a very special time in Australian cinema where scale, scope and ambition were the order of the day.
Mel Gibson and Mark Lee lead an all-star Aussie cast that traverses rural Australia, the deep outback, Egypt and finally Turkey and follows the exploits of two mates thrust together on the running track via their love of sport and on the battlefield via their duty. There’s enormous humour, widescreen action, larrikin behavior, expansive cinematography and high drama at every turn in this undisputed classic.
Everyone and everything about this film works and its considerable strength makes Gallipoli profound and moving viewing still today. Even better of course is the ability to see the film on the big screen – something that takes place all too rarely with this wonderfully composed work.
It’s the kind of film you need to see several times just to re-affirm that it is actually as good as you remember it to be.
After the screening, Mark Lee (Archy Hamilton) will join us for a Q+A via skype. An unmissable opportunity to speak to the actor behind an iconic character.
