They Shall Not Grow Old

Mon September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Documentary | New Zealand, UK | 2019

Directed by Peter Jackson
Rated MA15+

“This is as close as we can get to a full immersion into one of the most horrifying and ultimately pointless wars in modern history.” Chicago Reader

Peter Jackson directs this homage to the British troops of the First World War with never-before-seen-footage of soldiers as they faced the fear and uncertainty of frontline battle in Belgium. Digitally remastered and now in color, the footage has been studied by lip reading experts whose transcripts were recorded and used as audio for the film. Overlayed by a narrative of those who partook in the war from interviews made in the 1960s and 1970s, this historic revisiting marks one hundred years since the end of the Great War.

“It’s groundbreaking on its technological features and will be remembered for that as a profound reinforcement. But it’s the empathetic solidarity and resilience that reign supreme.” Confessions from a Geek Mind
