They Shall Not Grow Old

Director Peter Jackson’s homage to British troops of the First World War features never-before-seen footage of soldiers facing frontline battle in Belgium. Digitally remastered and now in color, the footage was studied by lip-reading experts whose transcripts were used as audio for the film. Narrated by those who partook in the war from interviews made in the 1960s and 1970s, this historic revisiting marks one hundred years since the end of the Great War. parkcityfilm.org
