Media Preview Event: “Where Soldiers Come From”

Please join us for an exclusive chance to meet Emmy Award winning filmmaker Heather Courtney before the screening of her film “Where Soldiers Come From.”  The media is invited at 5:30, before the doors open to the general public, to tour the Citizen-Soldier-Citizen exhibit, to speak with key staff members at LCA, and to meet Heather Courtney.   Ms. Courtney will host a Q&A session after her documentary.

“Where Soldiers Come From” takes an intimate look at the young men who fight for our country, as well as the families and towns they come from.   Heather Courtney returns to her hometown in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to follow the journeys of 3 childhood friends from their quiet, snowy town to the mountains of Afghanistan and back.  Over a span of 4 years Heather follows these young men from their beginnings in the National Guard, to active duty Soldiers fighting on foreign soil, to 23 year old veterans dealing with the challenges of the unseen wounds of war (Traumatic Brain Injury, and PTSD) while trying to integrate back into their families and communities.  The film becomes a story about the war at home as well as the war in Afghanistan.

Please contact Colleen Lane to RSVP, or for more information.
