Screening June 2nd:: Two film works post-Memorial Day to remind us to take care of our Military Service men and women because of what they endure for our freedom.

Please Hold
A locally produced film by  Navy Veteran 
and Saint Louis University Professor Jon Mabee

This is a film short about an Afghanistan and Iraq Combat Veteran trying to pursue the next chapter in his life post-military service and finding it incredibly difficult to get the help he needs in dealing with his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

After four tours as a US Marine in the Middle East;  he returns home to find an apathetic society who seems almost oblivious to the true trials and tribulations that he and his fellow veterans experience in these seemingly never-ending wars.

An Official Selection of the 2015 St. Louis Filmmaker’s Showcase.

Jon Mabee will be at the screening to introduce his work and do a Q & A

The Hornet's Nest

Armed with only their cameras, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning conflict Journalist Mike Boettcher and his son, Carlos, provide unprecedented access into the longest war in U.S. history.

Thank you to the Military personnel for their roles.

These two films are very powerful and could evoke strong emotions.  
We are not screening them to cause disturbances, 
we are screening them together because we need to remember the people 
who fight for our rights as citizens of the United States of America.
