Almost Sunrise: Movie Screening & Panel Discussion on Moral Injury

About this Event

The New York Institute of Technology will be screening the award-winning documentary Almost Sunrise at the New York Institute of Technology’s Auditorium on Broadway. The film follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey – a 2,700-mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California, in order to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to ultimately, save themselves.

There will be an hour-long networking opportunity starting at 5:00pm light refreshments will be served. The film screening will start promptly at 6:00pm. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion concerning Moral Injury & the Moral Ambiguities of War.

Leslye Moore, National Director, Project Welcome Home Troops

Bryan Adams Assistant Director, Rutgers Office of Veteran & Military Programs & Services
