Memorial Film screening at Dendy Cinemas, Canberra
War films show soldiers constantly locked in battle and participating in non-stop action - but the reality of war is actually much different. "No Dramas", a film by Robert Nugent commissioned by the Australian War Memorial, shows what life is really like for our troops deployed to combat zones.
Shot in Iraq in April 2006, the film explores the isolation and routines of Australian soliders, and the long periods of waiting they endure before the inevitable moments of extreme action.
"No Dramas" will screen as part of the Canberra International Film Festival on the evening of Saturday 7 November.
