Power To Win

Australia, 1941 (MIFF 1997)

Director: Charles Chauvel

Power to Win is a propaganda newsreel made during World War 2 encouraging greater production of coai for the war effort. A hyperactive voice-over implores Australian workers to produce "coal and more coal" in order to halt invasion, free POW's and keep the war machine rolling. This is an interesting and amusing piece of historical footage which shows war propaganda at its peak.
