Petrie Film Club presents Gallipoli (1981)
UCL Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology |
DMS Watson Building
Malet Place | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
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.
