In Flanders Fields – Armistice 100 YEG

We are proud to have worked with Edmonton, AB’s Armistice100YEG Committee on this beautiful video for the centennial anniversary of the Armistice. They have produced this video to reconnect Canadians to the history of John McCrae’s famous poem In Flanders Fields. 

Through the narration of the poem, and the combination of animated colourized archival images from The Vimy Foundation and Canadian Colour mirrored with contemporary footage, the video offers a dynamic and reflective look into the past, and an opportunity to engage with the history of service and sacrifice of Canada’s military during the First World War.

The French version is in production and we will share as soon as it is completed. // La version française est en production et nous la partagerons dès qu’elle sera terminée.
