About the Film
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. Narrated by 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 and is a unique cinematic story-telling experience.
“…a tribute paid by the present to the past, and what a gorgeous gift it turns out to be.” -Los Angles Times
