“4-4-43 The LTC Ed Dyess Story” Film and Discussion

September 18, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

NMNG Museum in conjunction with the Center for Contemporary Arts is hosting “4-4-43 The LTC Ed Dyess Story” Film and Discussion on 18 SEP 2015 at 1800hrs.

On the morning of April 4, 1943, ten American prisoners-of-war and two Filipino convicts broke out of the Davao Penal Colony, an allegedly escape-proof Imperial Japanese Army prison plantation in the Philippines. Their remarkable tale is told through the experiences of Lt. Col. William Edwin Dyess, one of the war’s most extraordinary yet little-known heroes, a handsome, daring Texan whose exploits changed the course of the war and later changed U.S. military policy. This documentary combines archival footage, interviews and stunning aerial footage to tell a quintessential American tale of fate, faith, sacrifice, heroism, teamwork and inspirational triumph over long odds. It’s the most significant POW story in American history and the true great escape of World War II. Presented in recognition of National POW-MIA Day.

The special screening of the movie will include a Q&A session and panel after the movie.
