The Great War - A Hundred Years On: J’accuse (1919) film screening

Join us for a continuation of events commemorating the anniversary of American engagement in World War I. J’accuse, a French silent film directed by Abel Gance, juxtaposes a romantic drama with the background of the horrors of World War I. Work on the film began in 1918, and some scenes were filmed on actual battlefields. The film’s powerful depiction of wartime suffering, and particularly its climactic sequence of the “return of the dead,” made it an international success and confirmed Gance as one of the most important directors in Europe.
