Award-Winning Documentary Screening at Massanutten Military Academy

Massanutten Military Academy will be screening the Award-Winning Documentary ‘THE GIRL WHO WORE FREEDOM’ during the 2021 Homecoming activities. The film will be screened on Friday, October 15 at 6:00 pm in Caskey on the MMA campus and is open to the public.

Director Christian Taylor allows viewers to discover the stories of D-Day from the people who know the most about it because they lived it. In a March 2021 press release, the ACACIA Consulting Group summarizes the powerful stories and current impact presented in the film:

“THE GIRL WHO WORE FREEDOM invites audiences to discover the untold stories of D-Day from the men, women, and children who lived through German occupation and Allied liberation of Normandy, France. Powerful and deeply personal, the film tells the stories of an America that lived its values, instilling a pride in country that is in danger of becoming a relic of the past. THE GIRL WHO WORE FREEDOM reminds viewers of who we are as Americans when we are at our very best. When we are standing up for those who are poor, oppressed, especially those whose freedoms and liberties have been stolen. It will be a reminder that individual and national acts of bravery, care and compassion have the power to impact others for generations.”
