TOMORROW – SATURDAY MAY 31
The Ojai Playhouse presents the film “Body of War” as a fundraiser for the Congressional campaign of Mary Pallant, who is running for the House seat currently held by Elton Gallegly. The film screens at 4:30pm for a $10 donation at the door.
Body of War is an intimate and transformational feature documentary about the true face of war today. Meet Tomas Young, 25 years old, paralyzed from a bullet to his spine – wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week.
Body of War is Tomas’ coming home story as he evolves into a new person, coming to terms with his disability and finding his own unique and passionate voice against the war. The film is produced and directed by Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro, and features two original songs by Eddie Vedder. Body of War is a naked and honest portrayal of what it’s like inside the body, heart and soul of this extraordinary and heroic young man.
