KOKODA’- NOW AVAILABLE ON DVD

'Kokoda' - a 2x55 min. documentary series offering the first major re-evaluation of Australia’s most important military campaign after Gallipoli – the brutal battle for the Kokoda Track and the desperate struggle to keep New Guinea from falling to the Japanese during the darkest days of World War II..

From the corridors of power to the blood-stained battlefields of the Papua New Guinea highlands, Kokoda tells the story of the brutal World War II military campaign fought between Australia and Japan. From day one of the Kokoda campaign the fighting was politicised, mismanaged, mythologised and venerated. Kokoda delves behind the myths of war to tell the story from both sides of the conflict. It provides an authentic and comprehensive account of the desperate confusion of war, the intricate connections between the frontline soldiers and military high command, and the political agendas that influenced the campaign and continue to percolate through contemporary Australian society.

The series is produced by Pericles Films in association with Featherstone Productions, Screen Australia, Film Victoria, Veterans Affairs and ABC TV. Director/Writer Don Featherstone, Producer and Co-Writer Andrew Wiseman, Sales and Distribution Screen Australia Promotions and Distribution, and ABC Shop.
