Veteran-made documentary ‘Project 22’ screening to be held at Marian University, Nov. 22

November 11, 2016

FOND DU LAC, Wis. — Marian University will host a screening of Project 22 on Tuesday, November 22 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Stayer Center Auditorium. Project 22 Flyer 11-16

Called “the catalyst for a movement that will define a generation,” by Danny Farrar (SoldierFit/Platoon 22), Project 22 is a crowd-funded, community-driven feature documentary, co-directed by two combat-wounded Veterans. Daniel J. Egbert and Doc King’s documentary follows the very personal story of a Marine Infantryman and a Combat Medic on a search for hope that expands into an awareness campaign spanning 6,500 miles on motorcycles.

Comprised  of  real  conversations with warriors, providers  and  researchers, Project 22 needs no combat  footage to comprehensively explore the transition  home, and leaves audiences  hopeful and  motivated to take action. The film released theatrically by request in April 2015 and has since screened over one hundred times around the United States, sparking dialogue around underlying issues and inspiring Post Traumatic Growth and healing.

This event is free and open to the public. However, monetary donations will be accepted and will benefit the Marian University Student Veteran Organization and Fond du Lac Salute the Troops.
