Independent filmmaker, director, and producer George Retelas was close to his grandfather.  After his grandfather’s passing George found his WWII journal and its contents inspired and launched George on a journey to connect with his grandfather’s wartime comrades.  On Saturday May 11th the Commemorative Air Force Southern California Wing at the Camarillo Airport will host George as he gives us a behind the scenes look at the making of his reflective documentaries, splicing together pieces of his film “Eleven,” a story about Hellcat-equipped Air Group 11 told by eleven surviving Air Group 11 veterans, and his current project that includes the heartbreaking yet heartwarming story of a daughter and a teddy bear.  Come hear George’s fascinating journey to connect to those involved in a titanic struggle 80 years ago and the closure he helped uncover for the family of a fallen warrior.
