Peter Jackson, best known for directing The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has created a new film using original footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive, much of it previously unseen, alongside BBC and IWM interviews with servicemen who fought in the conflict.

Footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail. The film screened at the NFSA on 11 November 2018.
