What did the world look like 100 years ago, when all we have now is faded black and white imagery? Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson uses new 3-D technology, coloration, and restoration to transform BBC archival footage into a documentary that repaints British soldiers’ experience of World War I, both literally and figuratively. Discover a different sense of the Great War from anything you’ve ever seen before with this re-envisioned portrait, in subdued colors, of the violence, adventure, brutality, and emotion of warfare. The lives lost and changed by the War somehow become more real and relatable through this gripping documentary. (Peter Jackson, 2019, United Kingdom, 109 minutes)
