Mountainfilm on Tour – Savannah hosts a special screening of documentary films in honor of Veterans Day each year where attendees can enjoy food, drink, and a series of fascinating documentary films.
The 9th Annual Honoring Our Veterans event features a playlist of seven short documentary films including:
Stranger at the Gate: Returning home from a long career in the U.S. Marine Corps, Richard “Mac” McKinney found himself struggling under the weight of a ferocious rage fueled by 25 years of an indoctrinated hatred of Muslims. Desperate to take action in the name of his country, McKinney set out to commit an unthinkable crime against his community’s mosque. His plans took an unexpected path however when he faced his enemy head-on.
Breaking Trail: Filmmaker and Film Subject Emily Ford sets out with a borrowed Husky sled dog, Diggins, to complete the 1,200-mile Ice Age Trail in the midst of winter. Not only is she the first woman to attempt the feat, but she is also the first LBGTQ+ person of color to embark on the adventure. As her story gathers momentum in local, national and international press, Emily learns she’s become a figurehead to encourage those who don’t feel like they belong in wild places — especially people of color — to spend more time in nature.
Loon: When hiking the Appalachian Trail, thru-hikers often choose a trail name that says something about their home or their history. Mike Freed, now in his 80s, chose the name Loon as a symbol of the spirit of the wild, interconnected lakes of his Minnesota homeland. The Appalachian Trail is also where Loon had a revelation about what course of action to take with his 2,000-acre expanse of unfragmented land in the pristine Boundary Waters.
General admission: $25. Veterans get in FREE! Please text 912.344.1278 to reserve veteran tickets.
