A documentary about World War I with never-before-seen footage to commemorate the centennial of the end of the war.
Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) has created a new film using original footage from Imperial War Museums’ (IWM) extensive archive, much of it previously unseen. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate; slept and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime. Footage has been colourised and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail. The film was recently given its World Premiere as the Special Presentation at the BFI London Film Festival.
