The Cedar Mill Library Film Club will watch the documentary, “The Welcome,” on Wednesday, September 26, 6:30 pm. “The Welcome” offers a fiercely intimate view of life after war: the fear, anger, and isolation of post-traumatic stress that affects vets and family members alike.
If you are a combat veteran or are living directly with PTSD in your life, we strongly suggest that you watch the film with a person or people that you know and trust. This is an emotional film and it is possible that you could be triggered by the intensity of the men and women and their stories and poems in this movie. This is a very positive film but, like most things of great value, this does not come easily and we simply ask that you take care of yourself and ask for the help and support that you need and deserve.
Film Club programs are free, open to the public and attendance is recommended for adults, aged 18 and over. Coffee, tea and popcorn are provided and a lively discussion follows each film.
