Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “A ground-breaking documentary about World War I with never-before-seen footage to commemorate the centennial of the end of the war.
This acclaimed documentary is an extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War, using film footage captured at the time, now presented as the world has never seen. By utilizing state-of-the-art restoration, colorization and 3D technologies, and pulling from 600 hours of BBC archival interviews, Jackson puts forth an intensely gripping, immersive and authentic experience through the eyes and voices of the British soldiers who lived it. Peter Jackson decided not to use narration as one might expect for such a documentary. Instead, he wants audiences to hear the voices of real soldiers who experienced the conflict first hand.
Jackson recorded a special introduction to the film—which he has called his most personal—offering his perspective on why the film is important for audiences, who have never experienced WWI footage as anything but grainy black & white…and silent. In THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD, Jackson opens a window to the past in a way that has never been seen or heard before, noting, ‘Restoration is a humanizing process.’ The screening will be immediately followed by special content offering firsthand insights into what went into this feat of research, filmmaking and storytelling.
Peter Jackson did not receive any fee for the film.”
