Event Details

NO RESERVATION REQUIRED | RUSH TICKETS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR National Anthem Performed by La Jolla Trumpets, Scenes from Saving Private Ryan. Lois Burwell, one of CIFF’s 2019 Celebrity Tribute Honorees, nominated for an Academy Award® for Makeup for Saving Private Ryan, directed by Steven Spielberg. Burwell will discuss her process for transforming the stars and more than 300 actors into the soldiers who stormed Normandy Beach on D-Day. Our feature film, Libertas, is a documentary about the 75th anniversary of D-Day as captured by C.J. Machado, a photojournalist, writer and veteran advocate. The film documents the “Normandy Jump 2019” in which Coronado’s own Tom Rice, at the age of 97, was part of the re-creation of the largest allied invasion in the history of the United States, Operation Overload. Rice was a member of the 101st Airborne Division’s “Screaming Eagles” who parachuted 75 years ago to help liberate the world from Nazi aggression. Tom Rice and CJ Machado will introduce the film.
