Sand In Tuscany - "Love In War"
Our hero is James Fred Camp from Sand Mountain, Alabama, and our heroine is Rossana Ferretti and her family is from Tuscany, Italy. The star crossed lovers meet in the throws of World War II and falling in love at first sight, come face to face with separation, bombings and death. How could a love survive so many odds?
The film team completed a feature screenplay and discovered in our scout to Italy the powerful "true story" behind the Italian campaign during WWII. We were convinced a feature documentary had to be made and have diverted from the original plan, to now develop with our non-profit partner SAND IN TUSCANY, the documentary. We are finding financiers, donors and sponsors who will come alongside of this amazing story to inspire the power of love even during war. Leave a legacy of love, and join our team in
SAND IN TUSCANY today. .
Our story begins with Lorretta Segars who was the author of the book SAND IN TUSCANY. Her son, Kirk Segars who is a CPA from Huntsville, Alabama, is the new Co-Executive Producer working with Lorretta's husband, Viet Nam veteran, Jimmy Segars whose family together believed this story should be a documentary and feature movie. Sharing the courage of their parents, admiring the power of their love story, they now stand united with our film team.
The images you see above are in the WWII museum of Anzio Beach, Italy where all of this began. In Anzio, there are many memorials which commemorate the battles of the World War in the Italian Theater from 1939-1945 with the world leaders. Entrenched in these amazing battles were the brave men called the "Blue Devils" of the 88th Infantry Division where our hero, James Fred Camp was part of the 313th Combat Engineers. Their brave and gallant well trained division took on the German "elite" and won the combat exchanges, battle after battle. All during these horrific times, a story of love was also birthing changing the destiny of an Italian girl and a young GI forever.
