Presented to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
A stirring, feature-length documentary that follows Project Recover’s search for the more than 80,000 Americans missing in action since World War II.
This small team of accomplished scientists, historians, and military veterans scour the depths of the ocean and the farthest corners of the earth, in a quest to deliver closure, solace, and kinship to MIA families who’ve gone generations without answers. In breathtaking imagery filmed over several years, archival footage and intimate interviews with Project Recover team members and MIA families, “To What Remains” takes viewers inside this emotional journey to honor our fallen servicemen—from the discovery of wreckage on the seafloor in the South Pacific, to the living room of a stunned family in middle America, to a well-deserved final resting place at home.
“leaves you with hope and inspiration and highlights the brave men and women willing to sacrifice their lives daily to help keep us free. “To What Remains” is genuinely a must-watch documentary.”

“A remarkable story told with admirable intimacy” from National Geographic Documentary Films.
In 1999, legendary climber Alex Lowe was tragically lost alongside cameraman and fellow climber David Bridges in a deadly avalanche. Miraculously Alex’s best friend and climbing partner, Conrad Anker survived. After the tragedy, Anker and Alex’s widow, Jennifer, fell in love and married, and Anker stepped in to help raise Alex’s three sons.
TORN delivers a profoundly intimate look at the Lowe-Anker family using never-before-released archival footage of the ill-fated 1999 expedition, early footage of Alex and Anker as young climbers, personal home videos and strikingly candid interviews with the Lowe-Ankers, as the film follows director Max Lowe, Alex’s now 30 year old son, in his quest to understand his iconic late father and explore his family’s complex relationships in the wake of his father’s death. A gripping and emotional story of adventure, love, loss, family and finding peace.
TORN premiered at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival and won the award for Best Feature Film at the BANFF.
