This week’s film, Shooting Robert King, is the second being offered as part of Snag Films’ SummerFest. It tracks the life and career of a combat photojournalist over 15 years and three wars. From reckless naivety to maturity hardened by war and softened by the love of his family, the film provides an interesting window into the complexities of this man’s motivations and the lessons, for good and ill, that come out of his years spent documenting war zones.
While this film is aimed at an adult audience, know that the USO Theater will continue to offer a wide variety of material, from the purely escapist to the laugh-out-loud humorous to the somber and serious. Our interest here is to provide a diverse range of free films that can be educational, entertaining, and spark useful dialogues. As always, let us know what you think…
