The performance and media arts department at South Arkansas Community College is seeking the personal stories of local World War II veterans for a new video documentary.
"The documentary will be approximately 30 minutes in length and totally produced by the students in the Documentary, Sound Recording and Directing classes at the college," PMA director Larry Powell said. "There are less than a million WWII veterans living in the nation, and we feel that it is necessary to document their stories for posterity."
The completed film will be submitted to a documentary film festival, Powell said.
If you are a local veteran of World War II who is interested in participating, or know one who is, contact Powell at (870) 875-7272 or lpowell@southark.edu. Representatives of the program will be recording these stories throughout the month of February.
