In The Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run
As Americans, we probably know more about World War II than any other war in our history. We have heard about D-Day from movies and stories told by our soldiers who landed on the beaches and parachuted into pastures and towns to fight for France. They fought and died to liberate men, women, and children from enemy forces.
But an important piece of D-Day history has been missing - stories of the Normandy citizens who were occupied and liberated on that day. For the people of Normandy, D-Day is more than a date in a history book or archival footage on a movie screen. D-Day is liberation. D-Day is freedom. For the last 75 years, their love and appreciation for their liberators continues to be passed on from generation to generation.
Film: The Girl Who Wore Freedom
A new feature length documentary, The Girl Who Wore Freedom, captures stunning first-hand accounts of the French citizens living under Nazi occupation. It captures their suffering during the Allied Invasion and subsequent Battle of Normandy. It documents their joy at liberation and their undying gratitude to America. Their first-hand accounts will echo through history.
Celebrate the stories of Normandy with us at the Mainstage Theater at Pheasant Run Sunday, November 17th. Veterans and civilians alike have been interviewed and the rough cut has been completed. Screenings and focus groups have been conducted across the United States and France. Your donation to participate in this screening will help shape the future of this film and provide an opportunity to bring this powerful story to more people. Will you help us meet this goal?
