Into Film Clubs
Find out everything you need to know about starting an Into Film Club
Reporter Kasper spoke to 1917 actors George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman about the research trips they went on to better understand World War I and the surprising facts they discovered about The Great War when filming their epic new film. They also spoke about creating a sense of brotherhood on set.
1917 tells the story of Blake and Schofield, two young British soldiers during World War I who are given a deadly mission to hand-deliver a message to an isolated regiment who will otherwise walk into a deadly trap. Shot to appear as if it's told in one extended take, the film is an immersive experience conveying what it was like to be on the front-lines of a ghastly war.
To help your students practise create writing ahead of upcoming examinations, we're running a creative writing competition inspired by 1917 to give you and your class the chance to win a private screening of the film at a cinema near you.
Download our Bravery and Brotherhood resource, and then ask your students to put themselves in Blake and Schofield's position and imagine they were a soldier in WWI. To enter the competition, they will need to write a letter to their loved ones from this perspective, describing conditions in the trenches, what daily life is like and what they miss about home. For details on how to enter, download the resource below. Entries close 31 January 2020. Terms and conditions apply.
