ChatCast 17 - Erik Nelson on ‘The Cold Blue’

May 24, 2019

Our second conversation of the week is with documentarian Erik Nelson about his fabulous new film "The Cold Blue." Nelson restores and assembles footage from William Wyler's WWII doc "Memphis Belle" so that he can tell the larger story surrounding the Mighty Eighth Air Force. The film acts as a tribute to both the pilots in the air as well as Wyler's band of cinematographers that risked their life (and in Howard J. Tannenbaum's case, lost his life) to capture this stunning footage. "The Cold Blue" premieres June 6th at 8:00 PM on HBO.
