The Return to Kungming

In 1998, I spent Christmas with my paternal grandparents in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. There I recorded my grandfather, a WWII veteran Army Air Corps pilot, recounting one of his missions from the war. It was footage that I had shelved for more than twenty years. I knew I wanted to make something of it someday. Now it’s been almost more than ten years since he passed away. Making this video was also a chance for me to spend time with him again. I’m so glad he was one of the “lucky” ones to survive the war.
