Breakthrough Leaders Alex Thomas, Daniel Dewsbury and Nelson Adeosun are directing and producing “The Colour of Victory: Heroes of WW2” for Idris Elba production company Green Door Productions. Nelson Adeosun (Breakthrough Leader 2022) produced the documentary and worked closely with the talented George Amponsah (British director of documentary films).
The new Nat Geo series ‘The Colour Of Victory: Heroes Of WW2’, will highlight people of colour who fought during World War Two. Produced by October Films and Elba’s Green Door Pictures, The Colour of Victory: Heroes of WW2 (working title) will see the Luther star focus on three unsung heroes per episode who have previously not been given the spotlight via premium dramatization, character portraits and archive. Elba, whose grandfather served in World War Two, will highlight roles played in Dunkirk, Pearl Harbor and D-Day, as he reveals how the war experiences of people of colour directly inspired post-war movements for freedom that swept the globe.
