‘Ride like an Anzac’ is a 27 minute film inspired by the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba in 2017.
The film will combine the stories of participants in the Light Horse Re-enactment and the ‘Ride like an Anzac’ commemorative bike ride tracing the Anzac Route taken by the Light Horsemen 100 years ago. Two different initiatives, brought together to honour the memory of our Anzacs, from all backgrounds.
The film will weave the history with what country and values mean to a diverse group of characters that went to Israel in 2017 and its continuing impact
The film will explore the strong relationship Australia has to Israel through the story of the Battle of Beersheba, and unlike commemorating the defeat at Gallipoli, we will explore how the important Victory at Beersheba (the greatest victory of the Anzac’s), played a pivotal role in the outcome of World War I as well as shaping the Middle East of today.
