Theatre of War

Theatre of War

Theatre of War tells the story of how six veterans from the Malvinas/ Falklands War came together to make a film. Almost thirty-five years after the conflict, three British and three Argentine veterans spent months together discussing their war memories and then rehearsing their re-enactment.

The Malvinas/Falklands War only lasted seventy-four days, from 2 April to 14 June 1982, but its consequences continue to this day. The war ended with the victory of the British forces and almost a thousand casualties between both sides. But the sovereignty of the islands is still disputed.
