WAR STORY, A

Anne Wheeler’s feature film, Bye Bye Blues (1989) about how her mother fed her family of three boys during World War II by singing in a dance band is more widely known than her earlier docudrama, A War Story (1981), which was about her father’s experiences in a Japanese POW Camp in Taiwan. However, the two films provide rare bookends to the experiences of one family under hardship.
