Alister Grierson, director of the 2006 feature film Kokoda, talks about historical accuracy and representing war experience on film.
This clip comes from a 2007 Talkback Classroom forum on the topic of 'Australian history in the classroom'. Grierson was interviewed as part of the students’ Learning Journey in preparation for the Forum.
Talkback Classroom was a forum program run by the Education section of the National Museum of Australia. At each forum a panel of three secondary students, selected from schools Australia wide, interviewed a leading decision-maker.
They also participated in a ‘learning journey’, researching the issue being explored by the forum and interviewing relevant people in the community.
This project was developed in partnership with the National Museum of Australia.
