Students from the film, animation, graphic design and music departments at Brigham Young University collaborated to make a video that commemorates 100 years since a Christmas truce took place on Flanders Fields in Belgium during World War I.

The non denominational interfaith group Faith Counts hosted and shared the video today. Kerry Troup, the spokesperson for Faith Counts said of the BYU students,

We’ve been very impressed with the BYU students’ creativity, professionalism and ability to give voice to stories of faith in profound and innovative ways.
