Chers amis,

J’ai le plaisir de vous convier à un événement hors calendrier du cycle 2010-2011.

Nous sommes invités par Brian Iglesias, le réalisateur du film « Chosin » (un documentaire sur un des événements les plus sanglant de la guerre de Corée) à l’avant première qui aura lieu à 7:00pm (présence sur place demandée dès 6 :30pm) sur le porte avion Intrepid à l’adresse ci-dessus.

Vous trouverez ci-dessous le texte de l’email que m’a envoyé Brian et la « storyline » du film.

Patrick,
This is Capt Brian Iglesias, USMC - I am the Iraq War vet - turned filmmaker. Sorry it has been a while and that this is short notice. We would like to invite you to our special Producers Guild of America screening of our film CHOSIN (a Korean War documentary film). It’s this Thursday at 1900. This will probably be our last theatrical screening in NY City. This is also the last screening for our Academy and PGA awards campaign. We are having it on the USS Intrepid, the big aircraft carrier in Manhattan. Please extend the invite to any friends you may know in the NY City area. This is invitation only and they need to RSVP to me. Thanks for the support ! See the invite below for more details.

CHOSIN : A documentary film by Brian Iglesias

“Deeply moving” – Former Secretary of State Colin Powell
“Chosin breaks the mold” – Military Times
“You will be riveted” – NY Times
“Superb” – Village Voice
"An eye-opener" - LA Weekly

CHOSIN was produced by Brian Iglesias and Anton Sattler, who spent eight months in 27 cities, living out of a van and eating military rations, to collect first person narratives of 185 surviving heroes of the Korean Wars infamous Battle of Chosin, one of the bloodiest and most decorated battles in American history. These Chosin Few share deeply personal stories of a time the world has forgotten...facing overwhelming odds and deadly sub-zero temperatures, while surrounded by 120,000 Soviet-backed Chinese in a battle that took the world to the brink of World War III. This film was produced by a team of Combat Decorated Iraq War Vets.

The result is a heart wrenching, but ultimately healing account, of brave but forgotten heroes who finally get to set the record straight and find closure on this 60th anniversary of the Korean War.

PGA Sponsored Screening Thursday, November 18th at 7:00pm (Doors @ 6:30pm)
Running time : 86 minutes
Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum, One Intrepid Square (W 46th St & 12th Ave), New York, NY

Storyline
In the winter of 1950, 15,000 U.S. Soldiers and Marines were surrounded and trapped by an overwhelming force of communist Chinese soldiers in the frozen mountains of North Korea. Facing impossible odds, the men fought 78 miles to freedom and saved the lives of 98,000 civilian refugees. Chosin is the first-ever documentary on the Chosin Reservoir Campaign. Presented in full, immersive HD, the stories of our veterans are supplemented with rare black and white and color archival footage gathered from hundreds of hours of research. After 60 years of silence, the survivors of the campaign take us on an emotional and heart-pounding journey through one of the most savage battles in American history. These first-hand accounts, combined with footage never before seen by most Americans, create a visceral, emotionally charged experience unlike that provided by any other war documentary.
