Using live animation and a miniature film set, Hotel Modern attempt to retell the story of the soldiers in WWI and make their experiences tangible. The audience is witness to the reconstruction of the Western Front on a tiny scale, using soil, parsley and rusty nails. A Foley artist provides the soundtrack to the film: a rap on the table sounds like a hand grenade exploding, the striking of a match is mustard gas being released.
The Great War deftly reminds us of the horror of war and begins LIFT’s After a War programme.
