Petrie Film Club presents Gallipoli (1981)

Date: 18 June | Time: 6-9pm | Location: Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | Price: Free | Age group: Over 15

Join us for a glass of wine, a quality screening and an erudite introduction. Featuring a section in Cairo, the film focuses on the Gallipoli campaign in 1915 two months after the Petrie Museum opened in London. The disastrous campaign led to the adoption of a different strategy, involving T E Lawrence, in Middle East diplomacy and politics, the repercussions of which are still felt today.

Introduced by Debbie Challis (UCL Petrie) who will look at the political context at the time of the Petrie Museum opening to the public in 1915 as part of the Centenary celebrations.

Book via http://petriecentenarygallipoli.eventbrite.co.uk. Doors open 6pm, event starts at 6.30pm.
