In the middle of the 20th Century, a war engulfed the world. It claimed lives, brought out the greatest endurance and strength of many, began future movements, and shaped hearts and minds. For Americans, the stories of this time were born under the emblem of a nation.

From Harlem to Honolulu, the 48 STARS: Journeys of a Generation team gathered epic stories from 48 different people. Stories that explore the WWII era through the eyes of those who lived it: veterans, civilians, participants, resisters. From deadly combat to revolutionary inspiration, 48 STARS finds the unexpected revelation, the poignant moment – penetrating to the heart of each human story.

Over 4600 combined years of life, 3.5 years of filming, and 50,000 miles of travel have been put into this unique film. With all interviews completed, and editing underway, 48 STARS is one step closer to being completed. 


48 STARS, coming soon!
