Harry 'Breaker' Morant was an Australian drover, horseman, poet, soldier and convicted war criminal, whose skill with horses earned him his nickname.

During service in the second Boer War, Morant allegedly participated in the execution of several Boer prisoners.

'Breaker' was trialled over the executions with two other lieutenants.

Along with Breaker Morant a special short film featuring the Australian Light Horse at the foundation of Canberra will be shown.

Tickets are $10 for Adults, $10 Concession and $8 for Kids for the August 14 screening at 6pm.
