In this program we present two films, Bamidbar and Made Like A Gun, that focus on Israeli veterans coping with post traumatic stress. Often hidden behind stoic veneers, both of these films expose the emotional and moral consequences of combat.

Following the films a panel of veterans’ affairs experts will lead us in a discussion focused on combat and moral injury. Read more about the films Bamidbar and Made Like a Gun.

TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE NICKELODEON AT 2:30pm
