Steamboat briefs: Award-winning film about vets, PTSD set to screen at library
October 6, 2017
Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs presents a free preview of the new documentary film "Almost Sunrise" at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9 in Library Hall. This film by Michael Collins and Marty Syjuco won the Moving Mountains Prize at the Mountainfilm festival in Telluride.
Moral injury may be the signature wound for this generation of veterans, but hope is on the horizon. In an attempt to put haunting combat experiences behind them, two friends embark on an epic 2,700-mile trek on foot across America, seeking redemption and healing as a way to close the moral chasm opened by war.
This special community screening is part of the library's collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.
