Hollywood Goes to War: WWI on the Big Screen: "Gallipoli"
Gallipoli tells the story of the Australian Gallipoli Campaign against the Ottoman Empire (modern Turkey) in World War I. One of the few Hollywood movies to illustrate that World War I took place not only on the Western Front in France, Gallipoli tells the story of this pivotal battle through the experience of two young Australian men who travel halfway around the globe to fight for their country. Gallipoli powerfully depicts the nature of WWI trench warfare and the sacrifice so many made in this important battle.
Free tickets are required and can be requested starting July 7, 2017. This film will also be shown at the same time at our location in Washington, DC.
