Film at the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex

January 27, 2022

Lecture & Film Series at the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex

January 27th from 7pm-8pm

FILM: “Pearl Harbor: Into the Arizona”

The museum’s monthly lecture and film series will be featured towards the end of January. The 60-minute documentary film “Pearl Harbor: Into the Arizona” will be shown at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27. The battleship USS Arizona was sunk during the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, at a cost of 1,177 lives. Many of the bodies of those killed were never recovered and the ship is regarded as a cemetery and sacred space. Divers are not permitted entry to preserve the sanctity of the site, so remote underwater vehicles (ROVs) were used to take an in-depth look inside the ship and assess its condition, revealing a moving picture of life aboard the ship on that fateful morning. The picture is all the more poignant through personal stories shared by several veterans who survived the attack, including one veteran who returns for what might be his last visit to the ship on which he served.
