This new animated film is over 70 years in the making.

A team of award-winning filmmakers created this unique film inspired by a veteran’s harrowing experience as navigator, flying in the largest air raid over Berlin in World War II.

Since Edward Field survived that fateful night in 1945, to authoring the poem in 1967, to recording the narration for the film on his 95th birthday this year, "Minor Accident of War" transcends time and place with raw emotion and humanity.

Edward's niece, media producer Diane Fredel-Weis, has gathered a team of world-class artists, including animator Piotr Kabat, sound designer Michal Fojcik, composer Alex Gimeno, animation consultant Alex Kupershmidt, and co-producer David Finch, to create a truly unique film that combines history with contemporary artistry.
