On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson presents 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. 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.

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.

This is a special presentation, showing only on December 17 and 27, 2018 in select theaters.
