They Shall Not Grow Old

8 June 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:05 pm

Date and Time: Tuesday, 8th June 2021, 7.30pm

We want everyone to enjoy this free screening. Please be considerate and don’t book your tickets unless you’re sure you’ll be attending.

 

On Friday 24 April at 19:30, as part of the “New Zealand Film Days” and in honour of Anzac Day,* the New Zealand and Australian High Commissions will be screening the documentary They Shall Not Grow Old by New Zealander and Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson.  Between 18:30 -19:20, we will be offering all spectators the chance to enjoy a glass of New Zealand and Australian wine before the screening of Jackson’s extraordinary new work, which brings into high definition the human face of the First World War like you have never seen before. 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.

 

*Anzac Day is observed annually on 25 April in New Zealand and Australia as a day of commemoration for those who died in the service of their country, and to honour returned servicemen and women.  The date is the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian soldiers (known as the ANZACs) on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 25 April 1915 during the First World War.  Anzac Day will be observed in Malta on Saturday 25 April, attended by both the New Zealand and Australian High Commissioners to Malta.

 

Synopsis:

Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) presents 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.

 

This screening is a collaboration between the New Zealand High Commission and Spazju Kreattiv.
