Check out FALLOUT: Coming Home from the War in Iraq at the NewFilmmakers Summer Festival on July 4th!

The 2009 NewFilmmaker Summer Festival will take place July 1 - 6 at Anthology Film Archives in New York City. On Saturday July 4th NewFilmmakers in the Deren Theater celebrates the Fourth of July with first hand accounts of the Iraqi War and its aftermath. FALLOUT: Coming Home from the War in Iraq begins at 6pm. Admission is $6.

FALLOUT: Coming Home from the War in Iraq is a documentary about three veterans of the war in Iraq. Each veteran speaks about their experience as a soldier in Iraq and the challenges they faced while readjusting to civilian life here at home. These firsthand witnesses explain how their experiences have affected them and altered their views on the war, the media, the public, and the leaders who put their lives on the line. FALLOUT is the premiere film of Ava Lowrey, an 18 year old film/video activist from rural Alabama. Her short videos on the war in Iraq have received international attention from news outlets including CNN, MTV, The New York Times, Le Monde(France), and Rolling Stone Magazine. Together with her brother Gordon, Ava set out with a single camcorder and drove across the South East to interview three veterans. Honest and straightforward, this unbiased documentary gives Staff Sergeant James C. Bailey, Corporal Michael Prysner, and Staff Sergeant Charlie Carlson a platform to open up with the public and share stories and opinions that might otherwise go unheard.

Any news on how the movie was received?
