    Documentary filmmaker Tim Gray will talk about his Emmy award-winning documentaries and the World War II Foundation located in South Kingston, R.I.

    The non-profit WWII Foundation honors the legacy of the veterans and survivors of one of history’s most important time periods by producing educational documentary films (31 to date) with several more in post-production). The documentaries air on television networks around the world via American Public Television. Each of our films range from 60 to 90 minutes in length. We make these documentaries available for free to educators, students and the public. The goal is to preserve these important stories for current and future generations.

    Among the Foundation’s other initiatives is the building of an overseas monument recognizing American leadership on D-Day and the World War II Foundation Global Education Center and Museum in Rhode Island, where over 4,500 artifacts, 700 books, and a movie theatre help tell the story of World War II to thousands of students each year. This event is free and open to the public. Limited seating available, first come, first served, and we will cap this event at 70 seats. 

    Join us at The Fuller Creative Learning Center on Tuesdays, June 7th and 14th from 6:00-7:00pm to watch Tim Gray's short films leading up to his talk at Weaver!
