The horror and the joy of war in living colour.

The fruit of research carried out across the entire world, They filmed the war in colour: France is free! is an exceptional documentary film that presents an ensemble of colour images filmed during the course of the German occupation and subsequent liberation of France.

France under German occupation, civilian life during this greatly troubled period, army exercises in north Africa and Great Britain to prepare for the liberation, the streets and cafés where soldiers, GIs and citizens celebrate their victory, celebrities like Clark Gable and Ernest Hemingway, the horrors of war and the bodies discovered at Dachau, these are the overwhelming images that make up the rich tapestry that is They filmed the war in colour: France is free!.

Enriched with memories from some of the last remaining witnesses of the liberation, these fragments uncovered from the 1940s finally give us the chance to view the war as millions of people had to live it: in colour.
