Movie Details

The story of a WWII U.S. bomber crew that, after its plane was downed over Borneo by Japanese antiaircraft fire, was taken in by the infamous Dakar tribe, which was known for headhunting. The documentary features archival footage and dramatic re-creations as well as remarks from the last surviving crew member, Dan Illerich, members of the Dakar tribe, and historian Judith Heimann, whose book The Airmen and the Headhunters inspired the program. ~ Jeff Gemmill, Rovi
