Experiencing Interruptions?

Une Libération

On the eve of the liberation of Paris from Nazi occupation during World War Two, Juliet, an American resistance member, risks her life descending into the city's underground tunnels to deliver a secret message to fellow fighter Jean. However, a final deadly encounter with a pair of German deserters threatens to destroy the very thing she's been fighting for.

Director Statement

I hope UNE LIBÉRATION will be seen as a piece that honors those who fought and died to make Paris a free city over 70 years ago.
