In January 1942, the Japanese war machine thundered across South East Asia. In its path lay a tiny Catholic mission station,
Vunapope. Here a handful of Australian nurses took refuge along with a number of wounded Australian soldiers. Abandoned
by their commanding officers, they were left to face the Japanese alone. Sisters of War is inspired by the true story of two
extraordinary Australian women, Lorna Whyte (now Johnston), an army nurse and Sister Berenice Twohill, a Catholic nun
from country New South Wales who was stationed at Vunapope. Although they were two very different women, their friendship
would survive the incredible events that followed. When the Japanese arrived at Vunapope, the nurses and their patients
were saved from massacre by the appearance of the mission’s leader, Bishop Leo Scharmach. This astonishing man
bluffed the Japanese into believing that he was a personal friend of Hitler and that the mission was Hitler’s property. Any
massacre of Australians would be a declaration of war on Germany. In the dark days that followed, Sister Berenice and Lorna
found themselves facing starvation, beatings and torture. Their beliefs were constantly tested, as was their friendship.

In February 2009 a group of Danish soldiers accompanied by documentary filmmaker Janus Metz arrived at Armadillo, an
army base in the southern Afghan province of Helmand. Metz and cameraman Lars Skree spent six months following the
lives of young soldiers situated less than a kilometer away from Taliban positions. The outcome of their work is a gripping
and highly authentic war drama that was justly awarded the Grand Prix de la Semaine de la Critique at this year's Cannes
film festival. But it also provoked furious debate in Denmark concerning the controversial behavior of certain Danish soldiers
during a shootout with Taliban fighters. The filmmakers repeatedly risked their lives shooting this tense, brilliantly edited,
and visually sophisticated probe into the psychology of young men in the midst of a senseless war whose victims are
primarily local villagers. Yet more disturbing than scenes in which Taliban bullets whiz past their cameras is the footage of
the young soldiers as each tries, in his own way, to come to terms with putting his life constantly on the line.
