Neil Halloran, from the fallen project, created an interactive documentary on the human toll of war. This episode is based around World War II.
Every now and then you find a video that is just so absolutely breathtaking, and awe-inspiring it needs to be shown to the world. This is one of those times, where I’m going to let the video do one hundred percent of the talking for itself. If you don’t have the time right now, put this on your watch later list, and come back to it.
About the project:
The Fallen of World War II is an interactive documentary that examines the human cost of the second World War and the decline in battle deaths in the years since the war. The 15-minute data visualization uses cinematic storytelling techniques to provide viewers with a fresh and dramatic perspective of a pivotal moment in history.
The film follows a linear narration, but it allows viewers to pause during key moments to interact with the charts and dig deeper into the numbers.
