They Shall Not Grow Old
Director: Peter Jackson
Nominee for Best Documentary at 2019 BAFTA Awards
They Shall Not Grow Old commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. It is a stark reminder of how terrible war is, even as it pays tribute to the sacrifice of a generation.
Fandango describes the film as follows: “Applying state-of-the-art restoration, colorization and 3D technologies to century-old footage — carefully chosen from hundreds of hours of original Great War film held in the archives of the Imperial War Museum (IWM) — Jackson has created an intensely gripping, immersive and authentic cinematic experience.
The only narration comes from Great War veterans themselves, selected from over 600 hours of BBC and IWM archive interviews, resulting in a gripping account of “The War to End All Wars,” told by the soldiers who experienced it.”
Released in 2018
