War Memorial

War Memorial is edited from Calling Blighty, a series of 60 moving 12 minute British films made by WW2 soldiers sending messages home to their wives and families. With Marion Hewitt of the North West Film Archive we are tracing the families of the men in the films and recreating the screenings in regional cinemas as they were 70 years ago. War Memorial is a different take on these strange and emotional films, which far from being reassuring, emphasises instead the men's doubt and uncertainty, through the directorial decisions of the largely unknown army filmmakers.

The show is well-written, futuristic, and nearly flawless. Give this film a chance, you'll be beyond thankful you did.
