SIXTH OF JUNE

Henry Roosevelt

Sainte-Mère-Église was ground zero on D-Day. For 75 years, people of all countries, races and faiths have gathered to commemorate those whose sacrifice changed the world. With few veterans left, who will preserve their legacy? SIXTH OF JUNE is the story of why we remember and what we lose if we forget.

Quite simply, I was moved by this film. Heroes surround us daily and often do not get their deserved recognition. This filmmaker switches the POV and allows you to see America through the lens of another. — Elle S. (Programmer)
