Our portrayal…

The 21st Infaterie Division was a German military unit which fought during World War II.

 

Mobilised in the 1st wave in 1939, the division took part in the German invasion of Poland and the following year's invasion of France. For the next four years, it fought on the Eastern Front, largely as part of Army Group North, assigned to Eighteenth Arm which was a part of the Army Group North until early 1945.

 

Our society impression is based upon a late war 1944-1945 German Infantry division "the 21.Infanterie division" 21.Infanterie Division) who fought on the eastern front during WW2.

Our impression and historical study is based around the extensive battles in baltic regions and the battle for East prussia 1944-1945.

"Amidst the horror and chaos of war, two enemies are forced into an unholy alliance in the battle for survival."

Starring Ross Tomlinson, Radina Drandova and Adam Ganne.

Written and Directed by Ben Desmond.

 

"A very stylish and promising short from a talented young film-maker on the rise." Mark Kermode.

“In post-war England, journalist Stephen Underwood (Alex Pettyfer) is keen to prove his worth. Working for a local newspaper he spends his days covering weddings and funerals while always on the lookout for a story that will catapult him into the big league. When he comes across the suicide of a Polish soldier from a nearby Displaced Persons Camp his journalistic instincts kick in, sensing something isn’t quite right, and his first port of call is to question Colonel Janusz Pietrowski, a Liaison Officer for the re-settlement of Polish troops under British command. Their meeting leaves Stephen unsettled – something just doesn’t quite ring true.
