This year it’s 100 years since the First World War began. Coldplay helps to spread knowledge of it with their video “All your friends”. The video consists of footage from the war. Similar to Karl Jenkins “The Armed Man” – a film that’s shown during performances of his opus (see picture). Documentary pictures can be an effective addition to the music.
Another music video with images from the First World War is Dire Straits “Brothers in arms” from 1986. A classic anti-war video. With its black and white drawings and soft music, you sense the sadness of war.
