Synopsis


On 15th September 1916, during the Battle of the Somme, the British army for the first time in history used tanks in order to force a breakthrough in the trench war. The use of this new weapon was a hellish experience, both for the defending soldiers in the trenches and the crew inside the tank. For Otto in the trench and Johnny in the tank, this proves a turning point.

“Inspired by the Pierre Jean Jouve’s poem Le Tank, this film is a free interpretation of the first tank assault during the First World War.”
