They Shall Not Grow Old Film Screening

7:00 PM – 8:40 PM
At the Salem Public Library

Free event. Seating is limited. Contains mature content.

On the centenary of the end of First World War, Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) presents the world premiere of an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never seen it.

This unique film brings into high definition the human face of the First World War using state of the art technology to restore original archival footage which is more than a 100-years old. Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story: the men who were there. Driven by a personal interest in the First World War, Jackson set out to bring to life the day-to-day experience of its soldiers. Using the voices of the men involved, the film explores the reality of war on the front line; their attitudes to the conflict; how they ate, slept, and formed friendships, as well what their lives were like away from the trenches during their periods of downtime.

This program is made possible by IU Cinema, Cicada Cinema, Washington County Chamber of Commerce and Tourism and the IU Center for Rural Engagement.
