"Fighting for Life" Documentary Screening

Today the Twin Cities Maimonides Society is holding a screening of the documentary film “Fighting for Life,” about the doctors, nurses, and medics treating wounded soldiers and marines on the frontlines during the Iraq War, as well as following medical students at USU as they embark on their career as military physicians, and a soldier as she recovers from losing her leg in a IED blast.

There is a reception in advance of the private screening, with a panel discussion afterward featuring local physicians with active military duty experience about modern military medicine.

Camp Coldwater Documentary Premieres Thursday at the Riverview Theater

Stop the ReRoute: taking a stand on sacred land will show at the Riverview Theater at 7pm on Thursday, May 22.

Stope the ReRoute tells the dramatic story of a community’s opposition to the State of Minnesota’s plan to drive a road through its birthplace, Camp Coldwater between Minnehaha Park and Fort Snelling – land considered historic to some and sacred to others. This inspiring film bears witness to the commitment of citizen activists to live lightly on Grandmother Earth, preserve precious natural resources, and resist car culture at the end of the Petroleum Age, as neighborhood and environmental champions, Native American activists, and young people coalesce in nonviolent civil disobedience.

Cost is $10. Doors open at 6pm, there’s “entertainment” at 6:30, and then the film screening will be followed by “honoring of activitists” and Q&A with the film’s producers.

I’m not sure if the Preserve Camp Coldwater Coalition is at all affiliated with the folks who made the documentary. A pagan activist person I know suggested that there’s not complete alignment between different groups with interest in preserving the land.

I attended a winter solstice celebration at Coldwater Spring last year.
