THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD

THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD

Peter Jackson directs this WWI documentary featuring never-before-seen black-n-white footage that's been digitally coloured to commemorate the centennial of the war's end. "Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. 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. Jackson and his team used cutting edge techniques to make the images of a hundred years ago appear as if they were shot yesterday. The transformation from black and white footage to colourised footage can be seen throughout the film revealing never before seen details." (Official synopsis) Directed by Peter Jackson ('The Lord of the Rings' trilogy, 'The Hobbit' trilogy, 'King Kong') Documentary, War, Historical New Zealand, UK
