Opening Night Featuring 'Take Me Home Huey'

Join GIFFSD on Opening Night for “Take Me Home Huey.”

Admission to the opening night screening includes a hosted reception with wine, beer, small bites, and dessert following the film and panel discussion in the museum’s David C. Copley Atrium.

About The Film:
The film documents contemporary artist Steve Maloney’s transformation of a wounded warbird, into a colorful sculpture. As the battered helicopter becomes whole, stories of Vietnam veterans and their families parallel the healing journey of Huey #174, and viewers begin to understand what veterans must face finding relief from trauma sustained during the war.

When the surviving crew of #174 is finally reunited with their helicopter, the Huey is no longer a combat gunship or air ambulance but has taken on a new life as an ambassador of healing, encouraging dialogue between surviving soldiers and their families working to heal old war wounds.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
