Voici le teaser que j'avais réalisé pour présenter mon film aux chaînes de télévision.
Voici le texte en anglais du commentaire. La version originale du film est en Anglais

Here is the teaser that I did to present my film to TV channels.
And for our english-speakers viewers here below the translation of the voice-over. 
The original version of the film is English

Ted Eaglen was only 20 years old when, on the evening of June 5, 1944, he was one of the first paratroopers to head for French soil. We have perhaps forgotten it, but the British of the 6th Airborne Division preceded the incredible Armada that was going to sweep across the beaches of Normandy on the morning of June 6, 1944.  
Who remembers these young men who, during the night of June 5th to 6th, would risk their lives, break the German lock and, for many of them, leave behind their youth. This film tells the story of these men who were the bridgehead of the landings, at the vanguard of the Liberation.   

On April 23, 1943, Winston Churchill decided on the formation of a new airborne unit: the 6th Airborne Division. Nearly 12,000 men would make up this division. 180 of them were the first to fight. The survivors from this unit are our witnesses.   

Today, the last of them will recount for us, day after day, the preparation, the training and the mission entrusted to them. Arriving in gliders or parachuting down behind SWORD BEACH, they had to secure the eastern flank of the Allied landing zone. Their objective: taking the Caen canal, which they had to hold until the arrival of thousands of  paratroopers.  

Now a legend, this bridge today bears the name of their division's emblem PEGASUS, PEGASUS Bridge. 
These were the same men who liberated the first French village, Ranville, where today nearly two thousand of them rest in peace.   
Nearly 70 years later, our witnesses return to the place where, risking their lives, they landed. This extremely dangerous mission, carried out in the middle of the night, the very first in Operation OVERLORD, proved to be an objective of highest importance.  

They were the first; today they are the last remaining survivors. Most of them have never spoken publicly. Their accounts, along with never before seen archive photos, are going to take us right back to that very first mission, that incredible night. 
Because the Normandy landings started before June 6, 1944, homage must be paid, before their voices die out forever.
