DocuClub NY: Island Soldier
Doors 6:30pm | No admittance after 7:30pm
co-presented with IDA
Please join us for the first installment of DocuClub NY 2017 with a work-in-progress screening of Island Soldier by filmmaker Nathan Fitch!
Filmed over five years, Island Soldier traverses thousands of miles to capture the experiences of Sapuro and Arthur Nena, US Army soldiers from the same small island of Kosrae, whose lives are resigned to different fates. The Federated States of Micronesia is a remote US territory with only 100,000 inhabitants, nearly all of whom are connected to the military directly or indirectly through family. Still immersed in a subsistence economy, the military offers opportunity – yet it can come at a very high cost.
Following the screening, we will be joined by Nathan Fitch (Director, DP & Producer), Bryan Chang (Producer & Editor) and Fivel Rothberg (Producer) for a feedback discussion moderated by Bronx Documentary Center's Founder Michael Kamber.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Space is limited. Admission not guaranteed, all RSVP's are first-come, first-served.
