This new documentary is in pre-production, Frank Moore: Mending the Line
Tough as nails, gentle as a poet, and determined as a badger, 90 year-old Frank Moore loves to fish. A World War II veteran, in 1944 he landed along with some 150,000 other troops on the beaches of Normandy, France for the D-Day allied invasion. Despite the cacophony of war around him, the young avid fly fisherman couldn’t help but notice the productive fisheries on the rivers he and his fellow troops crossed as they made their way into occupied France.
This documentary project will profile Moore’s inspiring and dynamic life history and follow his return to France to fish the rivers that he crossed so many years ago.
There are few veterans in as good health as Moore, far fewer that are willing to take the time and effort to travel back to France to see the war grounds of their past.
In May 2013 the Uncage the Soul Production team will travel to France with Moore and his wife Jeanie, traversing the rivers and World War II landmarks of Normandy.
