On Wednesday evening, March 30th, Film and Friends is excited to welcome Kara Frame to screen the last cut of her moving film, the short documentary I Will Go Back Tonight. Doors at 7, film plays at 8.
I Will Go Back tonight investigates the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on familial relationships of six veterans from the United States Army 5th Infantry Unit, the “bobcats”. The project focuses on the lives of five Vietnam veterans who served together in 1968 and one Afghanistan Veteran who came home in 2012. The landscape of war and the military has changed dramatically, but the lasting effects after veterans return remain the same.
During this screening, we will watch the most recent edit and give Kara our feedback and notes on any potential changes she may make for new cuts, general feedback on the film’s aesthetic and narrative choices–and ways to expand or improve, and ideas for audiences and dissemination moving forward. We want to hear your thoughts, and benefit for your perspectives!
