Film Festival. I don't think either of the films are "ready for prime time" but they were interesting nonetheless.

Above and Beyond was a little confusing, but 10th Mountain was very well done...

Nice staffat El Portal. First film was difficult to see, and graphics were almsot illegible. Second film was shot in SoCal and didn't make a great substitute for the French Italian border.

Description

“The 10th Mountain” (44 minutes; narrative/drama)

At the peak of World War II, an elite squad from the 10th Mountain division receives a new squad leader, a Filipino. The squad’s mixed views on their new Captain are tested as new orders have them infiltrating a German base in Northern Italy. Rising tempers and dissension in the ranks bring the squad to the brink of mutiny until a battle breaks out and every man’s resolve is put to the test.

Director: Alan Larsen

Key Cast: Ian Arthur, Ben Dukes, Christian Gomez, Patrick Mottola, John-Marc Yaden

“Above and Beyond” (40 minutes; documentary)

This touching documentary explores the death of Corporal William T. Perkins, Jr., the only combat cameraman to receive the medal of honor. Consisting entirely of Perkins’ own footage compiled from the national archives, it includes the last reels of film ever shot that were subsequently recovered from the battlefield. Never political, “Above and Beyond” reminds us of the delicate balance of life and death, and the human connections that ultimately endure.

Director: John Matysiak and Jason Sperling

Director of Photography: Cpl. William T. Perkins, Jr. (1947-1967)

Key Cast: Dennis Franz (narration)
