The Waler: Australia’s Great War Horse

Award-winning producer Marian Bartsch joins the National World War I Museum July 23rd for the American premiere of  The Waler: Australia’s Great War Horse. The documentary tells the story of the more than 130,000 Australian horses who left Albany in Western Australia to serve in World War I. Popularly known as ‘Walers,” they carried their men to victory on the long road to Damascus, but at war’s end they did not come home. The film documents their colonial origins, their gallant service and their shameful fate. Following the screening, Bartsch will participate in a special Q&A session about the making of the film. Free to the public with RSVP.
