Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond debuted on the market last year, which unfortunately did not restore the series to its proper fame. The game developed by Respawn Entertainment was prepared, among others, for Oculus.
The production from the creators of Titanfall and Apex Legends features the short documentary “Colette”, which was intended to add “historical authenticity” as “the basis of the game experience”.
However, “Colette” is not only an addition, because the film debuted in February 2020 at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, i.e. before the premiere of the title from the Medal of Honor series. The documentary directed by Anthony Giacchino was appreciated by the American Academy and this year it was awarded an Oscar for “Best Short Documentary”. What is he talking about? The story is dedicated to the fate of a former member of the French resistance movement, who confronts a traumatic past 74 years later.
This is the first Oscar for Oculus Studios and Respawn Entertainment to work on the production. The Guardian also won a distinction – the editors undertook to distribute the film.
“90-year-old Colette Marin-Catherine confronts her past when she visits the German concentration camp Mittelbau-Dora where her brother died. As a young girl, she fought against the Nazis as a member of the French resistance. She refused to set foot in Germany for 74 years, but that changes when a young history student, Lucie, enters her life. Marin-Catherine, ready to open old wounds and return to the fear of those times, offers us all important lessons. ”
