Performing live music with over 40 minutes of archival footage, and new documentary film, The Griffyn Ensemble tell the story of World War I in Australia through events in Rugby League between 1914 and 1918. From the working class tenements in ‘Dirty Red’ Glebe, the divisive Prime Minister Billy Hughes, and the traitor/hero status of boxer Les Darcy, this special multimedia event explores the battle for Australian identity and the ANZAC legacy. Comparing the stories of young men in the trenches with young men today, this is a special event not to be missed. Featuring new music by Michael Sollis and music of the era.
