The Screen Guide

HARRY'S WAR is a story of mateship, brothers in arms and friendship that embraces culture, war and death. Harry and Mitch are two mates who go off to fight in the jungles of Papua New Guinea during World War II. Harry is a Koorie and Mitch a non-Aboriginal Australian. In the story, we see Harry grow from a boy in uniform to a man in war. We watch as he learns of his impending death and how he faces it. HARRY'S WAR is about when mateship transcends race, cultural differences and societal barriers. It is a story of how war drives men to the brink and the journey becomes more important than the journey's end.
