Global Perspectives Film Series
Enjoy your lunch hour with us!
Come view one of the many extraordinary films from our library.
The Global Perspectives Film Series is one of our many continuing educational activities. Our goal is to provide the TTUHSC and local community with information about global, national, and local health and social issues.
Through the film series, attendees will also gain knowledge about various heritage celebrations, historic events, and current trends in health care. They will also receive insight into the customs, culture, and history of other countries and people.
Free pizza will be provided to the first 30 attendees. This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary.
My Vietnam, Your Iraq
- Date: Thursday, November 15, 2018
- Time: 12:00 noon CT
- Location: ACB 240
The Vietnam War polarized the United States in the 1960s; decades later, U.S. involvement in Iraq initiated its own discord. But My Vietnam, Your Iraq connects these two wars with less attention paid to divisive politics, choosing instead to focus on the personal stories of eight Vietnam veterans whose own children have served in Iraq. The stories examine the pride, fear, and myriad of emotions and challenges that parents and their children face during deployment, each with their own perspective and expectation. Though the stories are unique to the individual families, these intimate profiles resonate with all of us: the stories of the men and women who fought and fight for themselves, their families, and their country.
For more information about the film, including a trailer, please visit the following website: http://www.pbs.org/programs/my-vietnam-your-iraq/.
This film is being co-sponsored by the TTUHSC Office of Student Services Veterans and Military Advising.
This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP is necessary.
The film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only but is available for checkout from the OGH library by visiting our website.
