Operation Oblivion

Operation Oblivion

| 1 h 1 min

This feature documentary tells the remarkable story of a group of 13 Chinese-Canadian civilians who were trained by the British Secret Service for Operation Oblivion—a covert "suicide" mission that would parachute them into the jungles of the Pacific to fight the Japenese during World War II. Through first-person accounts, archival photos and videos, and animated re-enactments, an incredible story of race, nationality, and armed conflict emerges in stark and fascinating detail.
