Details: The Oklahoma City University Film Institute’s series will conclude with Bruce Beresford’s “Breaker Morant.” Admission to all films in the series is free. The series is supported in part by the Thatcher Hoffman Smith Endowment Fund and endowments through OCU and the Oklahoma City Community Foundation.
“Breaker Morant,” one of the most acclaimed Australian films, was screened in competition at the 1980 Cannes Festival and won best supporting actor as well as many other honors, including the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Film and 10 Australian Oscar equivalents.
Based on a famous incident in Australian history, Henry "Breaker" Morant was an Englishman living in Australia at the end of the 19th century. When the Boer war broke out in 1899 between Britain and the descendants of Dutch colonists, Morant and a number of Australians volunteered for duty in South Africa. What followed became the content for one of the most powerful films ever made on both war and military justice.
