Nathan Fitch's documentary film "Island Soldier" follows members of the Nena family from one of the most remote islands in the world to the training grounds of Texas and the battlefields in Afghanistan. The death of Sapuro "Sapp" Nena in Afghanistan makes waves through his tiny home island of Kosrae - where nearly everyone is connected to the U.S. Military directly or through family members. In an attempt to heal from his own deep wounds, Sapuro's best friend in the Army, Mario Robles, heads to Kosrae with his family to meet Sapp's parents for the first time and pay his respects on Veteran's Day. It is an emotional gathering of two families, from opposite sides of the world, brought together by loss, love and honor.

The screening will open with the two short films, "Anointed" by Daniel Lin, and "Crossing Spaces" by Lola Quan Bautista and Shirley Thompson. Please also join Brava after the screenings for a post-show discussion with "Island Soldier" writer/director Nathan Fitch and "Masters of the Currents" creators Leilani Chan and Ova Saopeng.

$12 / $8 students.
