The Charles H. MacNider Art Museum’s 2012 Winter Film Series, Films in February, Movies in March, continues this Saturday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. with Red Tail Reborn. Admission is FREE and open to the public. Popcorn will be provided.

The ambition to make the Tuskegee Airmen a household name is the primary objective of The Red Tail Project, a group of men and women who honor the Airmen by touring air shows with a restored P-51C Mustang, the famous roaring fighter plane these men flew in combat during World War II. Red Tail Reborn, narrated by Michael Dorn, is a tale of inspiration. Historic interviews, unprecedented access, and emotional honesty bring to light the tale of the Tuskegee Airmen.

Red Tail Reborn is a 2007 documentary feature that is not rated (mild content) and is 54 minutes long. It is sponsored by a Friend of the MacNider Art Museum’s Foreign and Independent Film Series.
