In May 1943, World War II is at its apex. To counter Hitler and the Axis forces, the Allies decide to open a second front on the western side of Europe. The Allied forces, led by US General Eisenhower, have just months to organize the operation code-named “Overlord,” with only a 50/50 chance of success, that will break Hitler’s Atlantic Wall fortress and lead to the Battle of Normandy.

Narrated by South Dakota native, renowned journalist and author Tom Brokaw, “D-Day: Normandy 1944” provides a new, penetrating look at this defining moment in history in a truly unique manner. D-Day itself is well-known, yet few know in detail exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 through August 1944, this became the most important location in the world.

“We wanted to make a film to pay tribute to the millions of men and women, soldiers and civilians, who gave their lives for our freedom 70 years ago. Regardless of nationality, virtually everyone today has a parent, grandparent or even a great-grandparent with a connection to World War II,” explained writer & director Pascal Vuong. “I thought for a long time about how to produce a large format documentary on this subject, and finally found my own way of telling this complex story to family audiences using a brand-new ‘cocktail,’ mixing innovative film techniques.”

Blending multiple cinematographic formats, including animation, CGI and stunning live-action images, “D-Day: Normandy 1944” brings this monumental event to the world’s largest screens for the very first time. Exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics, audiences of all ages, including new generations, will discover from a new perspective how this landing changed the course of history.

“What I was drawn to in this film is that it tells us the story of D-Day in a new way that gives such clarity to one of the most important events in the history of mankind,” said Brokaw. “I originally thought this was going to be another traditional documentary featuring grainy black & white footage, but as soon as I saw the first minutes of this film on the giant screen, I found it irresistible.”

Over 3 years in the making and with a budget of USD 5 million, all live-action sequences for the Film were shot exclusively on location in Normandy, France. No fewer than five CGI and visual special effects companies also collaborated under the creative leadership of N3D LAND Films to complete the 43-minute film.

The second large format documentary film from writer & director Vuong, “D-Day: Normandy 1944” is produced N3D LAND Productions and distributed worldwide by 3D Entertainment Distribution. Ronan Chapalain is responsible for the stereography and post production, and Col. (Ret.) Peter Herrly is the main historical advisor. The original musical score was written by Franck Marchal and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor Paul Rouger. Producers are Catherine & Pascal Vuong and Sylvain Grain, and Normand McKay served as associate producer.

The 70th anniversary of D-Day will be marked by national and local commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Eastern Europe, Asia and Australia throughout 2014.

The Film is recommended for all audiences.
