World War I brought to ex­tra­or­di­nary life

People (USA) - - PEOPLE PICKS -

DOC­U­MEN­TARY One of the real masters of dig­i­tal moviemak­ing, Lord of Rings di­rec­tor Peter Jack­son has done some­thing re­mark­able (again). Com­mis­sioned by Bri­tain’s Im­pe­rial War Mu­se­ums to make a doc­u­men­tary com­mem­o­rat­ing the end of World War I in 1918, he not only re­stored cen­tury-old black-and-white footage from the front lines—he col­orized it and trans­formed it into 3D. We walk through the nar­row trenches and watch in awe as shells ex­plode on the hori­zon, send­ing plumes of smoke and dirt our way. Most mem­o­rable, how­ever, are the faces of the men in close-up, their eyes alive with inar­tic­u­late emo­tion. Old has been show­ing ex­clu­sively in one-night en­gage­ments. The next is Jan. 21 on 1,000 screens. Try to find it and see it. ( fath­omevents.com, R)

Di­rec­tor Jack­son (in­set) worked ex­clu­sively with ac­tual war footage.
