Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Library News -

The clas­sic Aus­tralian war film, Breaker Mo­rant, will be screened at Hawkes­bury Cen­tral Li­brary on Thursday, 14 Septem­ber at 10am and again at 6pm.

This award-win­ning film, di­rected by Bruce Beres­ford, fol­lows the court mar­tial of three Aus­tralian lieu­tenants who stand ac­cused of ex­e­cut­ing en­e­mies as a way of de­flect­ing at­ten­tion from war crimes com­mit­ted by their su­pe­rior officers. Based on true events dur­ing the Sec­ond Boer War, it deals with the first war crime pros­e­cu­tion in Bri­tish mil­i­tary his­tory. A stir­ring court­room drama that in­tel­li­gently ex­plores the is­sues of war, pol­i­tics and in­jus­tice.
