Drawing heavily on the resources of Florida State's Institute on World War II and the Human Experience, one of the world's foremost archives on the social history of the war, FSU alumnus John Corry brings to the screen powerful images of the personal experiences of ordinary people caught up in the most extraordinary event of the 20th century. THE COLOR OF WAR, produced by Corry and IM3 Entertainment, a Los Angeles-based production company where Corry is a partner, tells stories of individual experiences of the war through authentic color footage whose images are not tinted, colorized, or even retouched.

Much of the research for THE COLOR OF WAR was done at the Institute. The letters and diaries that are housed in the Institute are integrated with rare color footage to detail the events. This sneak preview is a public thank-you by Corry for the help he received.

The 13-part series will begin airing on the History Channel on Sunday, November 18, 2001. Corry and IM3 have previously produced the acclaimed documentary series Weapons at War (65 hours) and Sworn to Secrecy (52 hours).

Event info: Thursday, November 8, 2001, 8 p.m. Student Life Center Auditorium. Free and open to the public.
