Stalingrad - a name forever associated with the horrors of war at their most unimaginable and traumatic. Survivors from both sides describe their harrowing experiences and provide some of the last eyewitness accounts that will ever be recorded. Gripping reports from people close to the Center of power alternate with these moving testimonies. Particularly chilling are excerpts from 8 mm films shot by soldiers during the siege. Russian archives opened their doors to the filmmakers, granting them exclusive access to documents and rare footage of Stalingrad. Archival film was digitally restored and scanned in HD, with some colouration of b/w material. Finally, 3-D animation helped recreate the city of Stalingrad and document its destruction in the course of the trilogy.
