  • Traitor

    In this singular portrayal of World War I, Stephen Daisley depicts one young New Zealander’s transformative path to betrayal and self-discovery when he befriends a Turkish doctor in an army hospital. Focusing on the infamous Battle of Gallipoli, Traitor presents a stark yet lovely portrait of how war changes and challenges men to the most savage extremes.
