4-4-43 - The greatest story of the War in the Pacific
September 19, 2015 7:00 PM
Location: Taos Community Auditorium

 ONE NIGHT ONLY

Q&A following film with John D. Lukacs
 

 

On the morning of April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners-of-war and two Filipino convicts commenced perhaps the most impossible mission of World War II: they broke out of the Davao Penal Colony, an allegedly escape-proof Imperial Japanese Army prison plantation in the Philippines. Called “the Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific” by the U.S. War Department in 1944, the account of the escape and the atrocities they endured at the hands of their fanatic captors – including the most monstrous war crime in American military history, the infamous Bataan Death March – has been all but lost to history. Until now. As seen through the eyes of Lt. Col. William Edwin Dyess, the recipient of the prestigious 2015 Texas Legislative Medal of Honor, this astonishing, true action adventure tale is finally told in full in a groundbreaking new documentary film titled “4-4-43.”

This is an educational and entertaining epic one hour documentary film, “4-4-43” is a quintessential American tale of fate, faith, sacrifice, heroism, teamwork and inspirational triumph over long odds – without a doubt the most significant POW/MIA story in American history, the true great escape of World War II, and a tale worthy of being called the “Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific.”

John D. Lukacs internationally-known author/historian/filmmaker will host a Q&A after the movie.
