This is a story of a likable, highly intelligent young man who was forgotten in the crossfire, as well as an unflinching look at the ongoing problems facing his proud yet troubled nation. 6:00 ' 6:30 pm Registration & Reception 6:30 ' 8:30 pm Screening followed by Q&A with Ian Olds, Director/Producer and Christian Parenti, Producer, Journalist
