Free Documentary Screening: Almost Sunrise
Monday, November 13 at 6pm
UC Theater, University of Montana
Almost Sunrise, an award-winning documentary, will be shown on Monday, November 13 at 6pm, at the UC Theater on the University of Montana Campus, in conjunction with Missoula Community Resilience week. A panel presentation and audience discussion will follow the film. Almost Sunrise follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700 mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California, to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to ultimately, save themselves. Will this epic pilgrimage allow them to begin the new life they so desperately seek?
The post-film panel includes: Kathryn Isaacson, executive director, Western Montana Mental Health Center; Anton Johnson, outreach specialist, Missoula Vets Center; Natalee Carlton, counselor, Missoula Vets Center; and Roy Savage, manager, Heroes Therapeutic Outreach Program.
The Institute of Health and Humanities is a sponsor of Almost Sunrise and of the second annual Missoula Community Resilience week, November 13-19.
