Sequel WWW.UNTILTHEYAREHOME.COM narrator Kelsey Grammar says, "I could not be more pleased with this NETFLIX acquisition of "Until They Are Home." This is a film that really means something and is much bigger than what I do on a day to day basis as an actor."
Director Steven C. Barber attached several A-list patriots to support "Until
They Are Home" with personal testimonials from Joe Manganiello, Captain Dale Dye, John Savage and Sean Patrick Flanery.
The day after Until They Are Home made the 2012 Oscar Shortlist Barber made a second appearance on Larry King Now along with Kelsey Grammer. Until They Are Home was awarded a spot on the 2012 Oscar Shortlist in two categories - one for Best Original Score and and one for Best Song.
Jamie Dunlap wrote the score and country music legend Clint Black wrote the theme song "She Won't Let Go" and also appeared on Good Morning America to sing the song on live TV last Memorial Day. http://www.youtube.com/
Until They Are Home was the local news of Memorial Day weekend in Los Angeles. Vanilla Fire filled the DGA Directors Guild of America with US Marines and patriotic stars and was shown on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX. http://www.youtube.com/
"Until They Are Home" follows the same noble path documenting the heroic efforts of JPAC (Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command) as these young service personal comprised of the Marine Corp, Navy, Air Force and Army travel around the globe searching for, identifying and repatriating over 1000s of MIA'S from WWII, Korea and Vietnam. There are 88,000 MIAs still unaccounted for from these foreign conflicts and "Until They Are Home" documents never before seen, jaw dropping color footage of the battle of Tarawa filmed by legendary WWII Vet Norm Hatch. Major Hatch's original footage used in the film With The Marines At Tarawa won the Oscar for Best Documentary Short in 1944.
"I want to personally thank Reed Hastings and Ian Brick of Netflix who have believe in Vanilla Fire's WWII films throughout the years. Netflix cares about the independent filmmaker," says Barber, "And in this day of age of reality tv and low budget horror films, that means a great deal."
