In Vimy-Ridge, director Damien Hess attempts to understand and connect with the tragedy of the First World War, a conflict that helped define Canada, and is inevitably becoming less and less familiar to younger generations. The film uses imagery of the haunting Canadian National Vimy Memorial monument in northern France to summon up names, faces and shadows that are fading from our collective memory. Vimy-Ridge was made for Hothouse 3, the NFB's program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was "Air & Home".
