From the producers of the Oscar®-winning films "Genocide" and "The Long Way Home" and narrated by Oscar®-winner Ben Kingsley ("Ghandi", "Exodus: Gods and Kings"), Golden Globe®-nominee Patrick Stewart ("X-Men" films, "Star Trek: The Next Generation"), and Oscar®-winner Whoopi Goldberg ("The Color Purple", "Ghost"), LIBERATION is the dramatic story of two very different battlefronts during WWII - the allied campaign to liberate Europe, and Hitler's genocidal war against the Jews. Using archival footage, contemporary radio broadcasts and enthralling first-person accounts; this enthralling work of cinema re-creates the heady atmosphere of Europe emerging from Nazi domination - in stark contrast to the horrific final days of the "Final Solution". Beginning in 1942, when the struggling Allies began envisioning an invasion of Europe, LIBERATION reveals the strategies and deceptions on all sides, while vividly depicting the struggle on the battlefield, and exploring those fateful years in panoramic detail. Interwoven throughout this remarkable film are the compelling stories of the Jews of Europe - unforgettable stories of tragedy, courage, resistance, and survival against impossible odds - stories we will never forget. LIBERATION is the very best in documentary filmmaking, praised as "fascinating…particularly effective” (Variety) and hailed as "chilling" (The Los Angeles Times), its power insights will resonate with audiences for generations to come. But most of all, this extraordinary film reminds us to bear witness to those who were lost.
