Photographic References Found in Christopher Nolan's "Dunkirk"

Artists always often take inspiration from other sources, and even Nolan is no exception to this. The newest film from Christopher Nolan is filled bountiful references from photographs archived from the military. In this video, both film scene and photograph are compared.

The war film depicts the Dunkirk evacuation of World War II, in which three perspectives were shown: land, sea, air. The film was shot on IMAX 65 mm and 65 mm large-format film stock, shot by cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema

The photographs and video footages were from the archives of Operation Dynamo, 1940.

The preview image was taken from the video.
