Synopsis
During World War II, 1.2 million African-Americans served in America’s Armed Forces. Fully 125,000 served overseas. 708 were killed. Among these were The Wereth Eleven. Their story was lost to history. Until now. The Wereth Eleven is an ambitious docudrama based on the true story of eleven African-American soldiers who were ruthlessly murdered by the Nazi SS during the Battle of the Bulge. The film weaves exciting visual effects, never before seen archival footage, and compelling interviews to detail one of the least known atrocities committed during World War II. The Wereth Eleven stars Ken Arnold (Abduction), and is narrated by actor Corey Reynolds (TNT’s The Closer and Steven Spielberg’s The Terminal). It was written and directed by award winner Robert Child (Silent Wings), and edited by Frederic Lumiere (director of the award winning World War II in HD). “I was really moved and saddened by the story. I set out on a mission to make sure the citizens of America and Europe knew what had happened to the eleven victims and make sure they knew of their contribution during World War II.” – Joseph Small, Executive Producer, The Wereth Eleven Extra Features * Panel Discussion held at the National World War II Museum with the producers of The Wereth Eleven * Extended Interview with The Wereth Eleven Historian and Co-Writer Joseph Springer * The Wereth Eleven Trailer * The Wereth 11 Exposed, a short film displaying the state-of-the-art special effects that went into the making of the movie Awards Founders Choice Award for Best Picture, G.I.
