Christopher Webster [Celluloid 10.06.14] scifi history



The Great Martian War of 1914, a show on History Canada, combines period archive footage with special FX and interviews with aging veterans to tell the story of the conflict: from the devastation of Western Europe where a rag-tag alliance digs in against monstrous Alien war-machines, to the political battle for the Whitehouse where President Wilson struggles to maintain US Neutrality.


Synopsis:
On its 100th anniversary, The Great Martian War tells the story of the catastrophic events and unimaginable horrors of 1913-17, when Humankind was pitted against a savage Alien invasion.

With powerful and detailed First World War parallels, The Great Martian War fuses sci-fi fantasy with specialist factual history to explore the real-world tragedies and unique horror of World War One.



The footage below is directed by Christian Johnson and Steve Maher and it's pretty impressive stuff.
