PLEASE NOTE: The Varnum Continentals will have a table at this event!
The public is invited to the world premiere of the new documentary film “D-Day: Over Normandy” narrated by the only five-time Super Bowl-winning head coach in NFL history, Bill Belichick. This event will be hosted by The Vets Auditorium in Providence, RI on May 27, 2017 at 1:00 PM.
Coach Belichick’s father Steve served in WWII in the United States Navy and saw time in both Europe and the Pacific.
The World War II Foundation hired one of France’s top aerial Drone camera companies to film some of the most iconic locations in Normandy from D-Day. The result is some of the most spectacular scenes of the landing beaches viewers have ever seen. In 2016 the WWII Foundation will tell the story of these famous locations utilizing ONLY aerial footage from our Drone camera, along with archival footage from June 6, 1944.
This will be the only New England showing of the film prior to its airing on American Public Television.
Immediately following the showing there will be a brief Q & A session with the producer and director of the film, Tim Gray and two Rhode Island 1st wave D-Day veterans of Omaha Beach.
Please note that due to his hectic schedule, Bill Belichick will not be able to attend the event.
