‘Sundown to Eleven’ Presentation, May 11, 2024


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.

11am to 2pm at the museum – $15.00 per person donation requested.
