D-DAY 3D: Normandy 1944 Lands at The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre, March 28

March 26, 2014 – 12:40 pm | Permalink

New 3D Documentary Brings To Life the Historic Landing That Changed the World

Dearborn, MI (PRWEB) March 25, 2014 — The Henry Ford and 3D Entertainment Distribution invite audiences to step back in time with the new film D-DAY 3D: Normandy 1944, which opens at the The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre on Friday, March 28.

In May 1943, World War II is at its apex. To counter Hitler and the Axis forces, the Allies decide to open a second front on the western side of Europe. The Allied forces, led by US General Eisenhower, have just months to organize the operation code-named “Overlord,” with only a 50/50 chance of success, that will break Hitler’s Atlantic Wall fortress and lead to the Battle of Normandy.

Narrated by renowned journalist and author Tom Brokaw, D-DAY 3D: Normandy 1944 provides a new, penetrating look at this defining moment in history in a truly unique manner. D-DAY itself is well-known, yet few know in detail exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 through August 1944, this became the most important location in the world.

Blending multiple cinematographic formats, including animation, CGI and stunning live-action images, D-DAY 3D: Normandy 1944 brings this monumental event to Michigan’s largest screen for the very first time. Exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics, audiences of all ages, including new generations, will discover from a new perspective—in breathtaking 15-perforation/70mm IMAX 3D film—how this landing changed the course of history.

Over 3 years in the making and with a budget of 5 million dollars, all live-action sequences for the film were shot exclusively on location in Normandy, France. No fewer than five CGI and visual special effects companies also collaborated under the creative leadership of N3D LAND Films to complete the 43-minute film.

The second large format documentary film from writer & director Pascal Vuong, D-DAY 3D: Normandy 1944 is produced by N3D LAND Productions and distributed worldwide by 3D Entertainment Distribution. Ronan Chapalain is responsible for the stereography and post production, and Col. (Ret.) Peter Herrly is the main historical advisor. The original musical score was written by Franck Marchal and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra, with conductor Paul Rouger. Producers are Catherine & Pascal Vuong and Sylvain Grain, and Normand McKay served as associate producer.

The film is recommended for all audiences. For information on tickets and show times, please call (313) 982-6001 or visit http://www.thehenryford.org/imax.
