The New Zealanders on the Western Front
Actor Robyn Malcolm, sculptor Helen Pollock and film maker David Blyth have individually made the journey back to the WW1 battlefields of Northern France and Belgium to retrace the footsteps of their forefathers. Each has created a personal tribute to the sacrifices of the New Zealand Division on the Western Front. The films contain interesting archival footage of the New Zealanders on the Western Front in WW1; and particularly around Passchendaele and Le Quesnoy. Each session of the films will be hosted and MC'd by a member of the Passchendaele Society providing extra insight into the content of what you will see. This season commemorates the fallen and the survivors of First Battle of Passchendaele fought on October 12, 1917.
