A new documentary tells the stories of six soldiers and one nurse who left their Indiana homes to serve in World War I. Over There: Hoosier Heroes of the Great War premieres November 10 at 9 p.m. on WTIU Public Television.
Backed by substantial research, filmmaker Jo Throckmorton dives deep into the lives of seven Hoosiers, revealing the unique challenges each faced. The highlighted Hoosiers include the following:
Throckmorton found the heroism in these stories to be transcendent across centuries. “I wanted to connect Hoosiers from a century ago to a modern audience,” he said. “Everybody loves a good hero story, which is why this film is relevant today and will be tomorrow.”
A 1987 graduate of Wabash College, Throckmorton has led a 30-year career in creative storytelling, winning an Emmy, an AAF Gold, and several Silver Tellys for his documentary and commercial work.
