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.
Nathan is a member of the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective; his award-winning work has been published by The New Yorker, The New York Times, TIME magazine, NPR, and The National Film Board of Canada, to name a few. He holds an MFA in documentary storytelling from Hunter College, where he was the recipient of the prestigious James Aronson Award for Social Justice Journalism.
