ANZAC Day, on the 25th of April every year, marks the anniversary of the first major military action by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War I. Each year, we remember those who fought at Gallipoli, and honour ANZACs both past and present. Our picks for the long weekend include three films that celebrate the unique ANZAC spirit: The Telegram ManThanks Girls and Goodbye and Nancy Wake: Gestapo’s Most Wanted.

“MAVIS!” is the first documentary on gospel/soul music legend and civil rights icon Mavis Staples and her family group, The Staple Singers. From the freedom songs of the ’60s and hits like “I’ll Take You There” in the ’70s, to funked-up collaborations with Prince and her recent albums with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Mavis has stayed true to her roots, kept her family close, and inspired millions along the way.
