A new film that is being released to coincide with the 150th anniversary of the First World War will offer viewers a peek at what life was like during the war, as well as some insight into what the war was really like.
The new documentary, titled “The First World,” follows a group of friends who were in the trenches during the First and Second World Wars.
The film, which is scheduled to be released in Canada on Dec. 6, is being produced by the CBC-TV show, “Q” and is set in 1918.
It features interviews with the soldiers and survivors, and the testimonies of family members of the men who fought, among other things.
“We hope to offer a unique perspective on the events of the war on the eve of Christmas, the 100th anniversary,” the CBC said in a statement.
“This is an exciting time for Canada and the world and we are excited to be able to share our passion for this story with the world.”
The CBC said it has already received more than a million views on its YouTube channel, which was launched in the summer of 2015.
The film’s producer, Stephen Lutz, said he hopes the film will inspire Canadians to learn more about the war and the sacrifices it made on both sides.
“In many ways, the first world war was a terrible, terrible event, but we live in a world where the Second World War has come and gone, and it is a very interesting time to reflect on what happened and the importance of the first and the Second,” he told CBC News.
“It is an important time to celebrate the life and work of these men, and to reflect upon the sacrifices they made.”
A few of the people featured in the film include the members of a Canadian regiment that served in France, who lost their lives in the battle of Arras.
Another character, played by a Canadian soldier, is a member of a unit that was on the ground during the siege of St. Quentin.
The documentary also will feature interviews with members of other Canadian units, including those in the United States, Britain, Germany, Italy and Japan.
It will be broadcast by the International Council of Film Directors, a Canadian organization that focuses on bringing films to audiences around the world.
