Real to Reel will be an immersive exhibition that will allow visitors to explore how film-makers have found inspiration in war’s drama to translate stories of love, loss, hope and courage as well as triumph and tragedy for cinema screens.

The exhibition will contain original items and personal testimonies, costumes, props and set designs all to help to show how films have managed to offer audiences new perspectives of war.
