WAR STORIES Our Mothers Never Told Us

WAR STORIES Our Mothers Never Told Us



1995, 94 minutes

In this moving documentary, seven elderly women recall their personal experiences of World War II. Their heartfelt tales have the capacity to move an audience to laughter and to tears, as they tell of love, death, small pleasures and large fears in a time of enormous change. From tragic love stories to long-suppressed revelations of sex and loss, War Stories is a richly revealing touchstone of New Zealand history. 

“Gaylene Preston takes a simple idea and turns it into a rich, universal experience proving that there is nothing more beautiful than the human face talking from the heart.” - KEVIN THOMAS, LA TIMES.
