Drawing from over 500 hours of archival footage, much of it previously unseen, Apocalypse: WWI traces the journeys of civilians and soldiers who fought for survival in one of the darkest times in history. An era that fundamentally changed the worldwide balance of power – from the war's outbreak in 1914 through the duration, to the U.S. intervention and The Treaty of Versailles.
This extraordinary series is screened free of any costs to the Gallery or public, courtesy of the kind and generous contribution from the producer, Josette D Normandeau and directors to the New Zealand WWI commemorations.
