IMA alum Nathan Fitch’s film Island Soldier is nominated for the Grand Jury Award at the Guam International Film Festival.
Island Soldier follows the personal stories of Micronesian soldiers serving in the U.S. military, accompanying them from the most remote islands in the Pacific to the front lines of war in Afghanistan. The film humanizes the repercussions of America’s foreign wars, and the changing of a small island nation caught in tide of international politics and on the brink of economic collapse.

Thursday, September 28th at 12:30pm
New School, 63 5th Avenue, Manhattan.
