New Kokoda Documentary by Author Patrick Lindsay
A new feature documentary, Kokoda…The Spirit Lives, will premiere on August 29 at over 50 RSL Clubs across much of the country, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Kokoda Campaign of WWII.
It is the hope of author, producer and director Patrick Lindsay that his film will help to elevate the campaign to its rightful place alongside Gallipoli in our nation’s history.
“I believe the Kokoda campaign should stand with Gallipoli as part of our modern Dreamtime,” said Lindsay. “Our film’s aim is to honour the Kokoda Diggers and portray their story with the respect and accuracy they deserve. The surviving Kokoda Diggers are now all in their 90s and they’re fading. We must honour them before they leave us.”
Lindsay’s film puts viewers in the shoes of the Diggers who fought along Kokoda Track. It breaks new ground with stunning drone footage intercut with rare archival film, as Kokoda veterans, from both sides, bring the story alive in their own words.
