Synopsis

FREE ENTRY!

 

This year, Imperial War Museums (IWM) and members of the First World War Centenary Partnership are working together to show The Battle of the Somme to audiences across the world.  Shot and screened in 1916, it was the first feature length documentary about war and changed the way both cinema and film was perceived by the public. In the year of its release around 20 million people (almost half the population of Britain at the time) watched it, many hoping to see the image of a loved-one, or friend captured on film.

 


THESE SCREENING ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE POWYS WAR MEMORIALS PROJECT…

…a four year project to commemorate the centenary of World War 1. The main aims of the project are to conserve and maintain World War 1 memorials in Powys and to engage local communities in activities relating to World War 1.
