ACMI, in association with the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, is currently presenting War Pictures: Australians at the Cinema 1914-1918.
This free world premiere exhibition commemorating the Centenary of the First World War is now showing at ACMI and runs until the 26th of July 2015.
What was screening in Australian cinemas during the First World War? The exhibition showcases shorts, newsreels, propaganda and feature films produced by the local film industry, as well as a selection of international content. This series shows how the war was presented on the big screen and features the melodramas and comedies that afforded escapism and entertainment to those on the home front.
This is a free event.
