Join us in honoring our veterans on November 12 for the screening of Stone Circle Production's award-winning film, High Ground: 11 Wounded Warriors, Climbing Home from War.

The film will be preceded by Veterans Day: A Cinepoem, a short film by H. Souranoff that confronts the real traumas of our Veterans when they come home after duty.

A panel of veterans will be present after the films showing for commentary, questions and answers. The theatre will open for seating at 6 pm with the screening begining at 6:30 pm.

Film Synopsis

Eleven veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan join an expedition to climb the 20,000
foot Himalayan giant Mount Lobuche.

With blind adventurer Erik Weihenmayer and a team of Everest summiteers' as their guides, they set out on an emotional and gripping climb to reach the top in an attempt to heal the emotional and physical wounds of the longest war in U.S. history
