WE for­get the im­por­tance of film in this tech­no­log­i­cal era. To­day, any­one armed with a smart­phone can be cam­era­man and dis­trib­u­tor; but 100 years ago it was the first time peo­ple could see first-hand the re­al­ity of war – the fear in a sol­dier’s eye, the death and de­struc­tion. It left the pub­lic speechless. This was the power of film. Rare footage cap­tures the peo­ple, events and ideas that shaped our world. From World War I to Nazi pro­pa­ganda, to Viet­nam anti-war protests, to the rise of global ter­ror or­gan­i­sa­tions, we wit­ness a truly defin­ing cen­tury in hu­man his­tory.
