Destination Unknown is the story of a traumatized 17-year-old WWII volunteer who joins the Army to escape the clutches of the Klan only to find an equally insidious foe with that threatens to thwart his segregated battalion’s critical D-Day mission. It’s MEN OF HONOR meets RED TAILS.
Based on a true story, the screenplay, written by Michael Gordon Bennett, has received numerous accolades from several screenplay competitions to include: the Los Angeles International Screenplay Awards, the Big Apple Film Festival and the Austin Film Festival.
“I didn’t even know what a barrage balloon was when I started this project. My cousin brought the story of the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion to my attention, and I couldn’t stop researching,” says Michael Gordon Bennett. “One of the characters in this film is actually a relative. As a veteran myself, along with being the son and grandson of a Vet, I appreciate the sacrifice of so many before me.”
The heroics of the 320th deserves to be known by all, not just because it’s a good story, but much of their exploits have been minimized or wiped from their rightful place in military history.

Rhythm Village Kids (RVK) is a children’s television series combining the educational value of Sesame Street with the nurturing nature of Mister Rogers and a bit of the visceral live the action of Xuxa and old school and comedic style writing of The Little Rascals — RVK is where these all come together in a compelling blend; in a word, “edutainment.”
