The Providence Performing Arts Center will screen the world premier of the award-winning documentary, “Above and Beyond” this Thursday at 7 p.m. The documentary illustrates the incredible escape of Jewish-American B-17 Pilot, Bruce Sundlun, when he fled from Europe in World War II. His plane, the “Damn Yankee” was shot down over Nazi-occupied Belgium in 1943 during the plane’s 13th mission over Europe. Five members of his 10-man crew were killed, and four others were captured by Germans. After Sundlun escaped, he flew more missions in the Pacific and following the war, he became a successful businessman and eventually the 71st governor of Rhode Island. The documentary is filmed in Belgium and narrated by Sundlun’s daughter, Kara, who re-traced her father’s footsteps. This event is free in honor of Rhode Island veterans.
When: Thursday, August 21
Where: the Providence Performing Arts Center, 220 Weybosset St., Providence
