DUNERA BOYS (1985)
Threatened by the impending horrors of WWII and in the interests of national safety the British Government set out to arrest all Germans residing in the UK. Despite being fully assimilated, many of these people were Jewish and sent aboard the HMT Dunera to Australian POW camps in Hay, NSW.
Commemorating 75 years, their incredible story of hardship, alienation and brotherhood is well regarded and the inspiration for the award-winning miniseries The Dunera Boys.
Winner of four AFI Awards, written and directed by Ben Lewin (The Sessions) and starring Oscar® Nominee Bob Hoskins (Mona Lisa), John Meillon (Picture Show Man), Warren Mitchell (Till Death Do Us Part) and Julia Blake (Hotel Sorrento), The Dunera Boys is an entertaining tale of friendship and a true testament to human resilience.
