They Shall Not Grow Old Screening

Peter Jackson's documentary They Shall Not Grow Old features restored footage shot by British soldiers during the first World War. The restoration goes beyond simply colorizing the grainy black-and-white footage, even using lip-readers to help translate some of the less clear audio. According to The Guardian, "the effect is electrifying. The soldiers are returned to an eerie, hyperreal kind of life in front of our eyes, like ghosts or figures summoned up in a seance. The faces are unforgettable." It's sure to be a haunting, visceral way to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the armistice. The film plays one night only at SouthSide Works.
