    • Synopsis
    • Inspired by Paul Nash's art and Wilfred Owen's poem "Dulce et decorum est", the short film "Say I am only seventeen" is founded around the true story of an underage boy named Stephen Brown who, in 1914, enlists in the British army. When he comes to the forefront, however, he regrets it and sends his mother a letter asking her to tell his commander he was only seventeen, so he would not need to return to the forefront. The film was produced in the First World War centenary year and it questions the sense of honor related to war experiences and how this feeling is still present nowadays.
