    Documentary Screening: Take Me Home Huey

    Saturday September 30, 2017 / 2 – 4 pm

    Winning the Mercedes-Benz Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the Palm Springs International Film Festival in January at its World Premiere, the 70-minute-long film combines contemporary and historical footage to portray the journey of a Medevac helicopter, shot down in 1969 during a rescue in Vietnam, as it is resurrected from a “boneyard” in Arizona and transformed into colorful sculpture by artist Steve Maloney. He partnered with Light Horse Legacy, a non-profit outreach organization focused on supporting veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress and a USA Vietnam War Commemorative Partner, which acquired, restored, and delivered the Huey for the project.  As the iconic Huey 174 morphs from wounded war bird into vivid sculpture, viewers of the documentary witness the power of art to heal surviving soldiers and families of the fallen. Ryrie Valdez, board member of the Nevada Arts Council, was at the Palm Springs Film Festival and was moved by the projects merits. She was instrumental in bringing the project to our community.

    The Folk & The Lore: Stories of Our Veterans

    Saturday September 30, 2017 / 6 – 8:30 pm

    From the creative mind of Jessi LeMay comes the storytelling and narrative filmmaking project The Folk & the Lore. This multimedia project aims to collect, archive, and tell stories from Reno and throughout the region through photography, short films, and live storytelling events held at the Nevada Museum of Art. Together, we believe that when you know your neighbor’s story, not only do you feel more connected to your community, but those stories become part of your own. Join us for an evening of storytelling and films based on the stories of our local Veterans and Active Service Men and Women.

    Doors open at 5pm for social hour, stories begin at 6pm.

    Tickets are free for Veterans and Active Service Men and Women. 
    All guests should register early, we do expect this event to sell out.
