Poster for William Kelly's War

Independent Australian war drama. The saga follows two brothers who leave their outback home to fight in WWI and, on returning, find their family under siege from a gang of bushrangers. More

Writer-director Geoff Davis - whose sons star as the brothers - raised funds independently and shot much of the film in the back paddocks of his farm near Leongatha in country Victoria. With a background in technology, Davis then used CGI and effects to simulate war locations and action. The film is inspired by Davis' favourite film, John Ford’s The Searchers.
