The hectic three week preparations for Syrup Art Fest’s 5th installment begin with the appearance of a bold red poster announcing pre registration on its social media handles. The design is a modern vernacular testament to the art fest’s relatability to the young Negrense art crowd, and as it had intended, the Glucose team, namely Ginoe, JV, Bencent, and Joe, reached their maximum number of participants, 50, in less than a week.

This year marks the 100th year since the First World War ended on November 11, 1918. The four-year war is one of the defining moments of the 21st century and was the first conflict to be extensively documented on film. Silent black and white footage allowed the public to witness soldiers on the battlefield, and get a glimpse of the horror of trench warfare. To mark the anniversary, film director Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit) has created a feature length documentary that shows the war as it has never been seen before. Taken from over 100 hours of restored footage, They Shall Not Grow Old presents the war as the soldiers themselves experienced it.
