Aro Recommended War Stories


aka: War Stories our Mothers never told us
New Zealand 1995, 95 minutes
Dir. Gaylene Preston
Genres: Documentary / Girl-centric, War

Topics: Late-life.


Aroview: Remarkable documentary manages to compel almost exclusively via the spoken word as seven elderly women offer candid yet articulate and boldy frank recollections of their wartime experience. A rare blend of entertainment and education destined to earn its place as something of a national treasure.
