The Price of Freedom

by Elliander Pictures


The Great War, it was said, was the war to end all wars.

THE PRICE OF FREEDOM, by Elliander Pictures, tells the story of one British soldier surrounded by the realities of war, searching for his own moral answers - told through the poetry of the First World War.

The Great War Poets painted a vivid picture of the inner war that every soldier fights within himself. A war in which man discovers the true cost of sacrifice, a true loss of faith and the true fragility of life.

Locked within their poetry is that truth; A soldier's realisation that no-one would ever understand what was asked of him and an experience of fear as he had never before known.

Using the emotive works of Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, A.A. Milne, Wilfred Gibson, Rupert Brooke and John McCrae, THE PRICE OF FREEDOM presents the sentiment of a generation defined by it’s courage and torn by it’s sacrifice, in a story seen through the eyes of just one soldier, but told from the hearts of every man who fought when the world first went to war.

The Price of Freedom was a steep learning curve for CDMH with tight deadlines and limited resources. King Edward's School, Birmingham, were kind enough to assist with the recording of the soundtrack and it was a very special moment to hear our music played live for the first time.
