Featured Films:

The Jockstrap Raiders
Animated Short (20 minutes)
Director: Mark Nelson

The animated film, “The Jockstrap Raiders,” takes place during World War I in Leeds, England. A group of underdog misfits are excluded from the war due to various abnormalities. Threatened by the invading German Kaiser and his army, they must learn to become a team and overcome their deficiencies in order to save Britain and the world.

Director: Kari Barber
International/Narrative Short (33 Minutes)

The Fifth Horseman is the story of Keiji, a young Imperial Japanese Army medic assigned to the infamous Unit 731′s medical experimentation facility commanded by his father. Keiji has always believed Unit 731′s work is wrong, but as a failed medical student he has become so consumed by his desire to earn his father’s respect that nothing else mattered. Everything changes with the arrival of a captured American pilot, whom Keiji soon befriends.

Documentary Short (52 Minutes)
Director: Min Sook Lee

The Real Inglorious Bastards recounts the thrilling story of Operation Greenup, the most successful intelligence-gathering OSS operation of World War II. Two young Jewish-American refugees team up with a conscientious deserter, parachuting one perilous night into the Austrian Alps. Through vivid first-person accounts, re-enactment, CGI, archive and historian commentary, the film reveals how their efforts disrupt a vital supply route between Germany and the Italian front and bring about the surrender of Innsbruck to Allied Forces.
