real war violence, mild bad language

Chronicling the heroic struggles of the Eighth Air Force during World War II, who flew B-17 Bombers over Europe, the film features rediscovered and meticulously restored raw color footage found in the national archives from the 1944 documentary Memphis Belle: A Story of a Flying Fortress, directed by the legendary director William Wyler.

A meditation on youth, war and trauma, The Cold Blue is a tribute to one of the world’s greatest filmmakers, his cameraman Harold Tannenbaum – who perished in combat while filming – and the men of the Eighth Air Force, who flew mission after lethal mission during the Air War.
