U3APP Friday Film 2024

Last updated on Saturday 20 April 2024

Next Friday is 26 April 2024.
It is the day after ANZAC day.
But fortunately there is a great film that fits the bill.
It is both a film about WAR and is set in FRANCE.

The film is directed by Peter Jackson.
The New Zealander who made the “Lord of the Rings” films.
It is a work of absolute genius.

The film is “They Shall Not Grow Old“.
A WW1 film that is crafted from 100 hours of 100 year old film.
However Jackson restored the film, coloured it, and added sound.
It is as if a twenty-first century film crew went back in time to make the film.

The film shows real WW1 footage, filmed in France as the soldiers saw it.
It is a gritty account of what things were really like in the trenches.

Everybody should watch this 20 minute DOCUMENTARY before watching the film.
The documentary is narrated by Peter Jackson telling you how the film was made.

The ONLINE class and the F2F waitlist people can the watch the FILM online.
Then anyone can attend the ZOOM discussion at 10am on Friday 26 April.

Those in the F2F class should be seated at 1pm in Room 3 of the Mary Kehoe Centre.
Some on the WAITLIST will soon be invited to join the class.

If you can’t attend the F2F class please register an APOLOGY.
Alternatively send me an EMAIL and I will do it for you.
There will be coffee and chat afterwards at the nearby IGA store.

See you on ZOOM or in PERSON on Friday 26 April.
