SYNOPSIS

War Correspondance is a touching two-part documentary that takes viewers from the beaches of the Gaspé Coast in Canada to the shores of Normandy in France. Some of the few remaining veterans from the First & Second World Wars share their stories of these historic battles and, through their letters from the frontlines, reveal the distance between what they choose to remember and what they can’t forget. (Part 1: WW1 – Part 2: WW2).
