War epic on screen
Hacksaw Ridge is a 2016 biographical war drama about the World War II experiences of an American combat medic, who refused to carry or use a firearm or weapon of any kind.
Directed by Mel Gibson, the film plays at Moonrise Cinema this Friday at 7.30pm.
The extraordinary true story of conscientious objector Desmond T. Doss, who saved 75 men in Okinawa, during the bloodiest battle of WWII, without firing a single shot.
He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon.
As an army medic, Doss single-handedly evacuated the wounded near enemy lines — braving enemy fire and putting his own life on the line.
