They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn;
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.”  – ‘For the Fallen’

On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents the world premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it. Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. 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.

An intensely gripping, immersive and authentic experience through the eyes and voices of the British soldiers who lived it. The acclaimed documentary is an extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War, using film footage captured at the time, now presented as the world has never seen utilizing state-of-the-art restoration, colorization, 3D technologies, and pulling from 600 hours of BBC archival interviews.

Director:   Peter Jackson
