It has been 70 years since the Allies landed in Normandy in the largest seaborn invasion in history. The events that day influenced the outcome of World War II and changed the world.
A new documentary, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944, released today at IMAX Darling Harbour, gives a fresh perspective of the monumental event, exploring the human beliefs involved, as well as the history, military strategy, science and technology adopted.
Narrated by American journalist and author Tom Brokaw, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 blends several state of the art cinematographic styles, such as live-action, animation and CGI, to recreate in exquisite detail the events which occurred that fateful day on the beach in Normandy.
Writer and director Pascal Vuong says the film is a tribute to the soldiers and civilians who gave their lives for freedom that day, and also for their families today. “Regardless of nationality, virtually everyone today has a parent, grandparent or even a great-grandparent with a connection to World War II,” Vuong says.
