SHOUT! Celebrating Women Veterans Through the Arts
Special screening of "My Mom's a Soldier" (Free with museum admission)
SFMOMA Phyllis Wattis Theater, 151 Third Street, San Francisco, 7:00 p.m.
Hosted by filmmakers Sandra Keats and Jim Miller, and associate curator for public programs, Frank Smigiel
SHOUT! kicks off this evening with a special screening of the documentary "My Mom's a Soldier." Keats profiles three women (two of whom are sisters) as they prepare their families for their upcoming deployments. The film is part of the documentary series, In Their Boots, about the impact of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are having on people here at home. Every episode features a documentary about how America's servicemen and women, their families, and our communities have been profoundly changed by our nation's campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The director and the producer, Jim Miller, will introduce the film, the larger PBS series, and join Smigiel in conversation after the screening.
Tickets for adults and students will be $9, seniors will be $6. This event is half the regular price for admission into the MOMA. Complementary seats are available for women veterans - for complimentary tickets, please contact our women's veteran coordinator Starlyn Lara at slara [at] stp-sf.org or 415-655-5272 or contact Jennifer Stasch at jstasch [at] stp-sf.org or 415-655-7246. Anyone with an ID Card will get in free as well as children under 12 years old.
