Event description

Description

Join Grammar Productions and special guests for the world premiere of 'Forgotten Allies', before it airs on UK TV later this year. Watch the documentary trailer here.

The film screening (45') will be followed by a Q&A session with the filmmakers.


SYNOPSIS: In the darkest hours of World War 2, thousands of men from Burma (now Myanmar) gave their lives fighting a brutal war for Britain against the Japanese, and to carry out the most successful guerrilla campaign of the war. But after the Allied victory, Burma sank into isolation, dictatorship and civil war, and Britain forgot the bravery of these men. Now only a handful of veterans remain - will they get the recognition they deserve before it's too late? One determined band of Brits are in a battle against time to make sure they do.


BACKGROUND: This film was made possible by the generous support of hundreds of individual donors from around the world, each moved by the story of the Forgotten Allies. The 2018 crowdfunding campaign was supported by public figures connected to the Burma campaign including Dame Vera Lynn, Viscount Slim, Griff Rhys Jones and Levison Wood, and had the backing of major veterans charities including The Royal British Legion, The Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League and Help for Heroes. The film's production has also been featured in BBC News, The Daily Mail and The Times.
