FACING WAR-NFPOC'S first documentary-May 5

NFPOC is excited to announce the first public screening of FACING WAR, a 40-minute documentary we have produced in partnership with Conscience Films of Port Jefferson, N. Y.

We will also be showing a short film, March on Washington, by Emily Greenberg of Mattituck High School. This will be followed by a discussion about both films with a group of high school students. We hope to have a lot of students and their families in the audience.

****STOP THE PRESSES!! ****We have just heard that Emily was awarded second prize for her film--among 18 entrants--at the CW Post Film Festival. CONGRATULATIONS, EMILY. We're proud to know you.

We have been exhibiting the Honor the Fallen memorial-- the nearly 200 panels containing the faces and obituaries of the American soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan--for two years now and in 15 major venues.

However, until now we have never really understood what effect the panels have on those who come to view them. In February this year we installed the memorial in Brooklyn Friends School for three days and then went back to interview the high school students and teachers who had been living with them for those days. What they told us and what we learned is captured in the documentary and we invite you to come and see it with us.
