Nikdy nezestárnou / They Shall Not Grow Old

Last year 2018 was not only marked by anniversaries of important events in Czech history, but also by the centenary commemorating the end of the first great conflict of the 20th century. Inspired by this anniversary, the director Peter Jackson and his team prepared a unique project using state-of-the-art technologies to restore century-old footage. After months immersed in the BBC and Imperial War Museums' archives, they employed film colorization methods, modern production techniques and sound effects to create a movie which tells the story of the day-to-day reality of war on the front line. What did its ordinary participants think about this conflict, what did they eat, how did they sleep, and what kind of life did they lead outside the trenches? Jackson reached behind the veil of time to give back a voice to those who were forever marked by the First World War.
