Miracle at St. Anna
James McBride, in collaboration with Francesco Bruni
35mm - colour
Tuscany, 1944. Four soldiers in the 92nd fight together on the front, but they also argue among themselves about the merits of fighting for America. Staff Sergeant Stamps, Sergeant Cummings, Corporal Negron and the towering Sam Train come to depend on one another in the constantly shifting reality of the war, but they are deeply divided as men and as black men in particular. Some pin their hopes on improved rights in the United States after the war; others have seen enough injustice to have lost all trust in the wisdom of the American dream and the predominantly white officers who embody it.
From the book by James McBride, with the same name.
