Synopsis

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping hundreds of thousands of British and Allied soldiers on the beaches of Dunkirk, with seemingly little hope of survival. In this uncompromising, powerful film we follow the stories of a few individuals involved, on land, sea and air. As RAF Spitfires scramble to engage the enemy in the skies, and attempt to protect the defenseless men below, hundreds of small boats manned by the military, as well as ordinary citizens, are mounting a desperate rescue effort to save even a small fraction of their army. The results became the stuff of historical legend, with more than 300,000 soldiers safely evacuated. With a particular emphasis on young faces caught up in the conflict, this is a stirring tribute to one of the twentieth century’s defining events.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
