Lest We Forget

This year Room 4 created a movie in remembrance of the world wars. We found out that this November marks 100 years since Armistice day, which was the last day of WW1. Check out our movie 100 years:



We created this movie to show the difference between our expectation of war and the reality of war. In the beginning the students are playing a war game, but at the end they experiencing the war as real soldiers. Our writers put in a lot of thought to our story, so you might notice some symbolism and metaphor in our movie. What do you think the holi powder represents?

    This is an a amazing movie. It really does show what happened in the war and why it's so important to know about. I really got the message with why Bethan was so sad. I loved how you all got to get messy with colors powder and water balloons.

  30. Hi Room 4,
    I thought this movie was very depressing but I also thought it was good that your class made a movie for the World Wars.

    Good Job

    Wow, this is one of the most complex movies I've seen at the film festival. It really makes you think.
    I love how you contrast the fun of play fighting with the realities of the horror of war. The use of the holi powder was a great metaphor. In my mind it represented blood or ashes.
    Your acting was brilliant and how you weaved all the strands of your movie together was great. Keep up the great film making!
