THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD
Genre: Documentary, History, War
Rating: MA15+ 99’ strong war themes and injury detail
Director: Peter Jackson
On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson presents the World Premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it.
Using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. The transformation from black and white footage to colourised footage can be seen throughout the film revealing never before seen details.
Reaching into the mists of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans, the humility and humanity that represented a generation changed forever by a global war.
