WWII Lost Films

WWII Lost Films is the first documentary to show World War II as it really was, in original, immersive colour. Selected from thousands of hours of never before or rarely seen archive footage obtained from an exhaustive worldwide search, World War II Lost Films will forever change how we view the war. Featuring the voices of well-known actors, including Rob Lowe and LL Cool J, this visually astonishing landmark series presents the story of World War II through the eyes of 12 Americans who experienced the conflict firsthand. Using diaries from the time, we hear the account of Army nurse June Wandrey, who served from the beginning of the war in North Africa to the liberation of the camps in Germany; Meet Shelby Westbrook, a young African American from Toledo, who became a member of the famed Tuskegee Airmen; Jimmie Kanaya, the son of Japanese immigrants, who served in the U.S. Army and was imprisoned in Europe; and Jack Werner, a Jewish émigré who escaped from Austria before the war and wound up fighting not against Hitler and the hated Nazis, but in the Pacific Theatre. With the help of a wealth of original sources, HD colour technology and stories filmed around the world, we can begin to understand their journey and witness the spectacle as they did.
