Alongside the trenches of WWI another battle was being fought: The war of propaganda.  This was the first time propaganda was employed by all sides to such great effect and the recently invented and popular medium of film was particularly useful to manipulate public opinion. Günter Kaindlstorfer explores these old propaganda films and discovers that many ‘war front’ films were in fact staged. This exceptional documentary includes never before seen archive materials from around Europe including Russia and Hungary.
