Film Festival with Croton's Andrew Courtney and Emily Perry

July 13, 2005

On Wednesday, July 20, at 7:30 p.m., two documentaries by independent filmmakers and Croton residents, Andrew Courtney, and Emily Perry, will be shown at The Film Forum, The Arts for PEACE Gallery, in the International Student Center common lounge at 38 West 88th Street, New York City.

The documentaries are: "The Realm of Ought"-Jeremy Hinzman, US Army deserter and conscientious objector tells his story from refuge in Toronto, Canada, and "Combat Vet: Dave Cline" - Dave Cline, combat veteran of the Vietnam war and director of Veterans for Peace tells his story to two "draft age" students.

Andrew Courtney is an activist, and documentary photographer, who has evolved from important time spent in Vietnam, Cuba, Central America, South Africa, Northern Ireland, and for the past 16 years, Palestine. His career has been significant for his black and white still photography, and his work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and museums and is in many private collections. Recently, Andrew has utilized his image making skills and his concern for educating the public on the issues of our times in making films.

Emily Perry brings her skills as a print editor to collaborate with Andrew in filmmaking. She journeyed to occupied territories in Palestine in the spring of 2004 with the express intention of documenting the separation wall Israel is building on Palestinian land.
