Play War Poster

Filmmaker Ruth Dusseault will be in person to premiere of her new film, Play War. In this documentary film Dusseault continues exploring the cross section of military service, war and recreation. In Play War, instruments of play, such as virtual reality, video games, and the live action game of paintball, are used to transition young people into military service while simultaneously providing therapy to war veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Contraband Cinema is proud to present this new work at Eyedrum on Saturday September 12th at 8pm. There will be a brief introduction and a discussion with Dusseault proceeding the film.
