It is thanks to Neil Sinyard's contacts within the industry that we are able to screen William Wyler's classic documentary, The Memphis Belle, which was restored for the New York Film Festival in 2018.

Legendary Hollywood director William Wyler (The Big Country, Ben Hur, Funny Girl, Roman Holiday) made the documentary featuring the 25th mission of The Memphis Belle, a B-17 Flying Fortress based in England in World War 2, in 1944. His film inspired the 1990 feature film of the same name.

This is a unique opportunity to hear about the great director, watch his documentary and contrast this with the 1992 Hollywood feature length take on the story which screen after the documentary.

We are indebted to Catherine Wyler for making the documentary available to KFF.
