Peter Jackson (Academy Award-winning director of "The Lord of the Rings") directs this remarkable homage to the troops of the First World War, featuring never-before-seen-footage of soldiers as they faced the fear and uncertainty of frontline battle in Belgium. Digitally remastered and converted to color, the footage has also been studied by lip reading experts whose transcripts were recorded and used as audio for the film.
Overlayed by a narrative of 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.
"In this profound documentary event, Peter Jackson creates digital miracles to revitalize archival footage of World War I until faded history comes to vivid, vital life. You won't believe your eyes." -Rolling Stone
