Art in the Face of War – Poster

Film: Art in the Face of War (2006)

Eight World War II Veterans/Artists recount their service experience and their use of art for journalism, as a tactical tool and as a way to preserve their own sanity. Covering all branches of the military (including the once top-secret Deception Corps), their powerful imagery will enlighten, challenge, even amuse; showing that war is indeed hell but that creativity and hope can exist in the face of destruction. In addition to the award-winning film, Art in the Face of War, the DVD also has compelling bonus material: over 90 minutes of additional footage including a slide show of the artwork, a multitude of entertaining stories from the Veterans/Artists on their wartime experience and a special section with their poignant thoughts on today's war.
