The Religious Freedom Education Project will host the Washington, D.C., premiere of “Chaplains Under Fire,” an independent documentary that examines the lives and work of military chaplains and the church-state tensions at the heart of the chaplaincy.
In 2007, filmmakers Lee Lawrence and Terry Nickelson spent three months in Afghanistan and Iraq examining the world of military chaplains through the lens of the troops they serve in combat and the controversies they trigger at home and on the battlefield.
Lawrence and Nickelson will answer audience questions at the conclusion of the 94-minute film. They will be joined by film editor Andrea Hull, military chaplain Ben Sandford, and Charles Haynes, director of the Religious Freedom Education Project.
Date: April 30, 2010
Time: 7:30 p.m.
The program is free and open to the public. Seating is on a space-available basis.
