They Shall Not Grow Old 2D + Recorded Q&A

Director: Peter Jackson
Duration: 126 min


On the centenary of the end of the First World War, Peter Jackson (The Lord Of The Rings trilogy) presents an extraordinary new work, revealing the Great War as you’ve never seen it. Using cutting-edge technology to transform images and audio captured a hundred years ago, Jackson’s passion project brings to life the people who can best tell the story: those who were there.
Using only 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, and what their lives were like away from the trenches. Reaching through the fog of time, Jackson aims to give these men voices, investigate the hopes and fears of the veterans who survived to tell their stories, and detail the humility and humanity of those who represented a generation changed forever by a global war.

Includes the recorded Q&A with Peter Jackson, from the film's world premiere at the London Film Festival, hosted by film critic Mark Kermode.
