In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, filmmaker Peter Jackson used groundbreaking computer restoration technology on archival film footage to create a moving real-to-life depiction of WWI, as never seen before. In honor of those who fought, Jackson restored, vividly colorized, and retimed film frames to accurately portray the lives of British infantry soldiers in the trenches.
“An emotionally rich documentary that wows both as a technical achievement and an unforgettable portrait of a terrible period of 20th century history.” — Jonathan Pile, Empire Online
