A special fund raiser for the Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans and Associated forces Inc. and Soldier On with money from ticket sales used to provide welfare services to Australian Veterans.
Join us at the theatre for a wonderful commemorative screening of the 1979 Tom Jeffrey written/directed and co-produced film of The Odd Angry Shot. This seminal piece of Australian cinema is considered to be the best movie made that reflects what Vietnam was like for an Australian Soldier back in that era and to add to the screening being of particular relevance, it is featured on Vietnam Veterans’ Day.
Following the screening, we have Tom Jeffrey, the director and Bryan Brown one of the stars on stage in a Q&A hosted by esteemed film critic, David Stratton.
The Odd Angry Shot is a war and action film with elements of great Aussie comedy, based on the book of the same title by William Nagel, and features an all star cast including Graham Kennedy, John Hargreaves, John Jarrett, Bryan Brown, Graeme Blundell.
Rated M: Contains medium level violence, medium level coarse language, nudity.
BLUE MOUNTAINS VIETNAM VETERANS AND ASSOCIATED FORCES INC.
Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans’ Association was formed on ANZAC Day 1985 as an autonomous, apolitical organisation to foster social contact with all who have had any active service, in any service arm or civil capacity, during the period of Australian involvement in the war in Vietnam. In 1997 its’ successor, Blue Mountains Vietnam Veterans and Associated Forces Inc. was formed and now accepts veterans who have served in all post World War II theatres of war, special operations areas, and peacekeeping operations. Because of the character of this association, it does not involve itself in any possible controversy on Vietnam or in any other matters relative to any military involvement. This association now places strong emphasis on involvement in members’, their families and/or dependant’s welfare/needs in its activities.
Soldier On is Australia’s only national fully integrated and holistic support services provider for our national service personnel and their families.
