March Schools Screenings


War Horse

Tue 28 March, 10am • 2h35, cert 12, History, English

16 year-old Albert is a farmer's son in rural Devon, who forms a close bond with Joey, a willful horse he has successfully trained. When war breaks out, Albert is devasted to be separated from Joey, who is needed at the front. Passed between many different masters and sent into the battlefield where he is often up against machine artillery, we see the scale of the devastation from the point of view of the horses who were involved in warfare. Based on the beloved novel by Michael Morpurgo, this is an epic and emotional depiction of the First World War. A teaching resource for the film created by Film Education can be found here.
