AFTER THE BATTLE
Three films about the culture of remembrance of World War 1 (Winter Prayers 2006, The Scrap-Iron Age, 2008, War is Over 2011) have been re-edited in AFTER THE BATTLE. The search for remnants on the former battlefields of France and Belgium has its origin in a combination of materialist, ideological and supernatural motives. Historiography appears inseparable from the personal life of those involved. Given the large amount of ordonance in the soil such an occupation is not without danger. Also still on the battlefield are thousands of missing soldiers. What place do they get in the story the diggers make up for themselves and for us?
