Wright Museum to Present “Epic” D-Day Documentary Film

On Tuesday, September 3 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Wright Museum will present “Surviving D-Day,” a 2012 History/Military Channel documentary film that tells the story of the twelve-hour battle on Omaha Beach during WWII.

According to Museum Executive Director Mike Culver, the film tells the “epic” story of the battle that changed the course of WWII. 

“This is well-developed film that shows D-Day as an intense battle that combined skill, leadership and bravery in a short period of time,” he said. “I expect it will be very educational and moving for visitors.”

The film will discuss some surprising factors of the battle, such as conventional weapons used alongside “outlandish inventions” like floating tanks and exploding paratroopers along with spies sending paintings with hidden messages.

The 138 minute film presentation is part of Wright Museum’s 2019 Lecture Series, sponsored by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney.

The series takes place every Tuesday through the end of Wright Museum’s season, which concludes Oct. 31.
