Tino Struckman and his production company, Almighty Dog, produced a video program for the Grand Lodge of California last year. Now, Struckman, who has made something of a speciality of WWII dramas and documentaries, has written and produced Brother's War.
The film is described on the website:
Based on real events, the setting for Brother's War is the Eastern Front during the final days of World War II. In the midst of fierce fighting, as the Western Allies and the Russian Red Army make their advance toward Berlin, a British Army Officer attached to the Red Army discovers a secret that can shatter the unity of the Allies.
Seized by Stalin's dreaded Intelligence Service, he finds unexpected help from an enemy and fellow prisoner, a German Captain. A common bond through Freemasonry binds the two Officers by honor, oath and secrets. Joined by Anna, a beautiful Polish nurse cast adrift in the tides of war, the three are pursued by a ruthless Russian Intelligence Officer intent on preventing them from reaching Allied Command with their secret which could change the course of the war and the fate of millions.
While obviously dealing with a limited budget, from the looks of the trailer, Danish-born Struckman and director Jerry Buteyn have made a good looking film that tells a very personal story from a little-discussed portion of the history of the war.
No word yet on how it will be distributed.
