The Fog of War
To mark the Centenary of World War One, Tyneside Cinema presents a selection of some of the most evocative war films ever made.
Taking in important cinematic classics portraying the Great War such as Paths of Glory, All Quiet On The Western Front and Peter Weir’s often-neglected masterpiece Gallipoli; this season also includes two of cinema’s most challenging and thoughtful takes on the savagery and emotional toil of armed conflict, both set during World War Two (The Thin Red Line, screening from a 35mm print on its 20th Anniversary; and Samuel Fuller’s The Big Red One).
This special season also includes the UK’s first ever live, interactive feature film, Bloody Minded, inspired by the legacy of pacifism; and the latest project from Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson, who brings to life restored archive material of the people who fought in the Great War as part of a new 3D film project with 14-18 Now and the Imperial War Museum, and who joins us live by satellite to discuss his latest film.
