HIMC Presents: Deserter Nov 14 at Rice Cinema

posted by Free Press Houston @ 7:56 AM

'Deserter' is the journey a deserting soldier and his young wife as they flee across the country to seek refugee status over the Canadian border. As they move from safe house to safe house, we get to know Ryan and Jen - two, shy, small-town kids from the Central Valley who joined the military because there were no jobs, and find they must make a heroic stand in order to escape an illegal and immoral war. 'Deserter' is a political road movie with one of the few happy endings that this war has given us.

After the Film Members of Iraq Veterans Against the War will talk about their experiences and facilitate a discussion.

Cosponsored by Iraq Veterans Against the War, Rice for Peace, Veterans for Peace, and Military Families Speak Out
Rice Cinema is Located at Entrance #8 to Rice University at University and Stockton Ave.
