“Pearl Harbor Unseen” relates to piece of original color footage from the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor that was filmed by a U.S. Army soldier and his wife. This footage has never been seen in public before and captures the aftermath of the Japanese attacks on battleship row and Hickam Army Airfield. This is an episode of Pearl Harbor history that was obscured by the passage of time but that nevertheless offers a unique insight into the experience of surviving December 7th.
