Day of Days: June 6, 1944

Posted on 6/2/2020 12:00:00 AM in What We're Watching

A note from our curator, independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Ernie Corvese recalls jumping off his landing craft when a huge explosion hit the water. He was the only member of his team to survive the landing. Alone, he crawled up the beach. Nineteen-year-old landing craft coxswain Richard Fazzio dropped off countless comrades at the beach, only to watch them gunned down upon exit. A question that haunts all these men is: "Why did I make it and my friends didn't?" In this remarkable film, Day of Days: June 6, 1944, filmmaker Tim Gray brings together an incredible group of World War II veterans who become storytellers themselves—remembering the gritty details of the invasion as if it took place yesterday. This film may be lengthier than our usual features, but I believe it’s worth every moment.
