Pictured: Sundlun and crew in front of their B-17 bomber Above and Beyond
This film highlights one of the most compelling escape and survival stories from World War II — that of former Rhode Island Governor Bruce Sundlun (1920-2011). Sundlun, a U.S. Army Air Corps pilot, flew a B-17 bomber on combat missions during World War II. On December 1, 1943, his bomber drew heavy fire from German fighter planes and crashed in a field in the Nazi-occupied Belgian town of Jabbeke. By nightfall, Sundlun (a Jewish-American) remained the only member of his 10-man crew not killed or captured by the Germans. With help from a vast underground network, he fled to occupied France, where he joined the Resistance. ABOVE AND BEYOND unfolds as Sundun's daughter Kara retraces his wartime journey.
