War Memorial Center, Memorial Hall

Please join the War Memorial Center in the screening of "Almost Sunrise". Debuting at the 2016 Milwaukee Film Festival; the film's encore Milwaukee presentation will be March 9, 2017, in Memorial Hall. Space is limited and tickets are free, so reserve your spot today at this link.

 

Almost Sunrise is a story of veteran resilience and recovery. The film follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, who struggle with depression upon returning home from service. Fearful of succumbing to the epidemic of veteran suicide, they seek a lifeline and embark on a 2,700-mile walk from Wisconsin to California as a way to confront their inner pain.

 

The film captures an intimate portrait of two friends suffering from the unseen wounds of war as they discover an unlikely treatment: the restorative power of silence and meditation.

 

Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson will be in attendance and will be part of the talkback session following the film.

 

To learn more about the film please watch the trailer or visit the film's offical website
