“Peter Jackson's astonishing and revelatory new feature documentary comes at the subject in a way no previous film, book or play has ever done.”

Marking the centenary of the end of the First World War, Academy Award-winning director Peter Jackson (Heavenly Creatures, The Lord of the Rings trilogy) was given unprecedented access to the Imperial War Museums' extensive archive, much of it previously unseen.  Combining it with audio interviews with servicemen who fought in conflict he has crafted an extraordinary new film telling the story of life on the front line.

This very special 10.45am screening will be preceded by a one-minute silence at 11am.  We request that ticket-holders arrive and are seated prior to this time to avoid disruption.
