Crafting a larger-than-life narrative spurred by down-to-earth characters is one of director Kathryn Bigelow‘s trademarks as a filmmaker. Teaming up with Xfinity, Bigelow and her team have brought that lens to a touching reunion story among Air Force veterans ahead of Military Appreciation Month.

Showing the way technology can help people forge and maintain relationships over decades, Xfinity released “The Aviators.” Created in partnership with agency of record Goodby Silverstein & Partners, this high-production short film introduces us to a group of vets and one dedicated grandchild hoping to forge a new connection with the older generation.
