The combined talents of WingNut Films and Weta Workshop provide this unique opportunity for New Zealanders to see and feel a deep and long lasting connection to this pivotal time in history. The story of emergent nationhood is woven into the fabric of the Exhibition and has a compelling resonance of its own.

The troops saw the war in colour and Sir Peter has painstakingly digitised black and white photos of the war to illustrate the "real war" to today's viewer
