They Shall Not Grow Old (16)

2018 | 1h 39m | Documentary, War | Directed by Sir Peter Jackson

Wednesday 15 May, 7.30pm

Peter Jackson's amazing rejuvenation of Archive War footage.

Using state-of-the-art technology and materials from the BBC and Imperial War Museum, filmmaker Peter Jackson allows the story of World War I to be told by the men who were there. Life on the front is explored through the voices of the soldiers, who discuss their feelings about the conflict, the food they ate, the friends they made and their dreams of the future

"I've never seen such an artistic approach to a documentary. Peter Jackson uses his extraordinary vision to capture the tragedy of the Great War. The transitions of the black & white/small screen to color full screen encapsulates an eery clarity that comes with war; while capturing the ignorance of the horrors modern warfare, both before the war ramped up, and after the war ended. This film is a work of art, and impacted me on a deep level" - RK Variety
