** PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE VETERANS FILM FESTIVAL **
Commissioned for the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson has created an incredible immersive experience of what life was like for a soldier in World War I. Reviewing hundreds of hours of interviews and footage from the BBC and the Imperial War Museum, Jackson has compiled and transformed original film footage, using state-of-the-art technology, allowing the story to be told by the men who were there.
A unique event that should be shared by everyone, They Shall Not Grow Old not only documents the experiences and honours the brave men who fell in WWI, but also serves as a timely reminder of the incredible sacrifices that have been made by ordinary human beings throughout history.
