ALMOST SUNRISE, A DOCUMENTARY
Almost Sunrise is a story of veteran resilience and recovery. The film follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, who struggle with depression upon returning home from service. Fearful of succumbing to the epidemic of veteran suicide, they seek a lifeline and embark on a 2,700-mile walk across America as a way to confront their inner pain.
The film captures an intimate portrait of two friends suffering from the unseen wounds of war as they discover an unlikely treatment: the restorative power of silence and meditation.
Join us for a post-show panel discussion with Dr. Bob Meagher featuring Tom Voss, the documentary subject, and Michael Collins, the film’s director.
This performance is linked to The Z’s 2017/2018 ArtsBridge theme of the Veterans Experience. The slate of programming includes Jessica Lang Dance, The Things They Carried, a screening of the documentary Almost Sunrise, and more. The Veterans Experience provides an opportunity to reflect on issues that affect our veterans with a focus on the redemptive power of storytelling.
