Watch The Lighthorsemen

"They did what they were told... They didn't know it was impossible!"

The Lighthorsemen is a film about the military unit that served in World War I as a light horse unit. This Australian film was created to tell their story as they fought in the Palestine and Sinai Campaigns, known as the Battle of Beersheeba. While based on a true story, it is a fictional telling for the purpose of film. Like other Australian films of the kind, this film is meant to show what the men went through, how men faced the harshness of war and overcame these traumas. As a war film, it is very one sided and just gives an idea of the struggle from this unit.
