Jenny Morgan's acclaimed documentary Behind Enemy Lines: The Real Charlotte Grays examines the SOE's (Special Operations Executive) female agents in Nazi-occupied France during World War II.

Four (of the then-surviving eight) women are featured in interviews, and two are movingly reunited with wartime comrades. The documentary was made for Britain's Channel 4. (52 mins., video)

This event is presented as part of the Camouflage Project, produced by Ohio State's Department of Theatre and Advanced Computing Center for Art and Design (ACCAD) with support from the College of the Arts and Humanities, the Mershon Center for International Security Studies, and Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women Grants.
