The Wake Up Call – With Post Screening Talkback and Reception

October 29

Date:
October 29

The Lincoln Theater and The Peace Gallery invite you to join us for a special event in honor of our Veterans – a free screening of the documentary film The Wake Up Call followed by a post-screening reception.

The Wake Up Call film screening will be held at The Lincoln Theater, beginning at 2pm. Following the screening, Lincoln Theater will host a talkback with guest filmmakers Alison Gilkey & Eric Neudel. And following the talkback, all are invited to join in a reception at The Peace Gallery, Damariscotta’s Veterans Art Collaborative and Community Resource.

The Wake Up Call – Dave Evans was a renowned prosthetist, humanitarian and peace activist. A double amputee himself, he dedicated his post-military career to transforming lives shattered by these seemingly never-ending, interchangeable wars. From Syrian refugees in a prosthetics clinic in Amman, Jordan, to the fallout of war in places like Iraq, Dave chose a life of service to others. The film generates a fierce discussion about patriotism and war, especially in light of recent on-going world events. The characters have an irrefutable standing, and their experiences and hard earned wisdom make for compelling viewing. If war is a choice, “The Wake Up Call” gives expert counsel about the decision to get involved.

Running Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
