Agenda

Washington, DC Premiere of The Lafayette Escadrille documentary

Wednesday 10 November 18:00-20:00

In honor of Armistice Day and Veterans Day, please join us for the Washington, DC Premiere of The Lafayette Escadrille documentary.

The Lafayette Escadrille is a brand new documentary feature film by FACC Members Paul Glenshaw and Darroch Greer. It is one of the great stories of the French-American alliance, telling the story of the American volunteers who flew for France before the US entered WWI. They were known as The Lafayette Escadrille, and became the founding squadron of American combat aviation.

A post-projection panel discussion with the filmmakers will give you glimpses into the four-year production, in which they filmed over 40 locations in France, and worked closely with the French and American families of the pilots, finding troves of never-before-seen materials.
