FFA and the London Australian Film Society present a very special commemorative screening of Peter Wier's award winning World War 1 classic, introduced by Ian Henderson of The Menzies Centre for Australian Studies at Kings College
The 25th of April, Anzac day, is a sacred date in the Australian calendar. The whole nation downs tools
and takes time to remember those who fought for their country and allies' freedom.
In commemoration the London Australian Film Society is honoured to present the multi-award winning Gallipoli starring Mel Gibson, Mark Lee and Bill Hunter. Written by one of Australia's greatest playwrights, David Williamson, and directed by Peter Weir (Green Card, Picnic at Hanging Rock). The film follows two young rival sprinters from Western Australia as they sign up to fight in the First World War, and travel half way around the world to fight an 'unwinnable' battle on the shores of Turkey.

Mother knows best in this award winningly affecting family drama
Fred Schepisi's (Last Orders, Roxanne) stormy portrait of a gloriously dysfunctional family is based on the novel by Nobel prize winner Patrick White. Promises of a lavish inheritance and unresolved familial grievances reluctantly draw estranged children Basil (Geoffrey Rush) and Dorothy (Judy Davis) to the bedside of their dying mother Elizabeth, played by the magnificent Charlotte Rampling. Determined to dominate and manipulate until the very end, Basil and Dorothy's increasingly desperate attempts to mollify their mother spin them in ever more tragically comic circles. With such a celebrated cast on board as well as a standout performance from Schepisi's daughter Alexandra, The Eye of the Storm positively dazzles.
