They Shall Not Grow Old
DIRECTOR: Peter Jackson
Through ground breaking computer restoration technology, filmmaker Peter Jackson's team creates a moving real-to-life depiction of the WWI, as never seen before in restored, vivid colorizing & retiming of the film frames, in order to honor those who fought and more accurately depict this historical moment in world history. 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.
For the first time, those jittery, frenetic figures in ancient newsreels look and move like people you know.Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"They Shall Not Grow Old" shows that actually seeing something is different from knowing it intellectually, or even from imagining it. The effect of this is moving and profound.Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
