The film's opening charge sequence took almost two weeks to film. With the 22 day shooting schedule, this meant that the cast and crew would arrive on location in the late morning, shoot a portion of the charge, then transition into shooting the night scenes throughout the evening before wrapping at dawn.

A poignant film. Beautifully told, and I thought Denai (actress) was superb. I absolutely loved the womens storyline. As a girl, War films are not something I generally race out to see. But this film was recommended to me, and I was not disappointed. This is a war story with a difference, instead of focusing on the scale of war which has been done to death, Forbidden Ground tells the story from ground level. They create an awesome claustrophobic feeling, which is always how I envisaged soldiers on the front line would have felt. Having to keep your head down all the time!! The film captured the very essence of not only the tragedies on the battlefield, but the tragedies at home too. Utterly memorable.
