2010 Winner "Best Documentary" at the GI Film Festival
On July 24, 2010 we were thrilled to be the only theater in the city to show the amazing documentary CHOSIN. The screening was free and open to the public and has the people of Columbus talking. Producer/Director Brian Iglesias and Producer Anton Sattler conducted a Q&A after the screening to make this experience even more monumental and unique.
Chosin is the first-ever documentary on the Chosin Reservoir Campaign. Presented in immersive high definition video (HD), the stories of our veterans are supplemented with rare archival footage gathered from hundreds of hours of research. The survivors take us on an emotional and heart-pounding journey through one of the most savage battles in American history. These accounts, combined with footage never before seen by most Americans, create a visceral, emotionally charged experience unlike that provided by any other contemporary war documentary.
As a fellow veteran, director Brian Iglesias forged a unique connection with the men he interviewed. Time and again, these men shared stories they have never told to anyone...not their wives, children, or their closest friends. Chosin is not the first documentary to give a voice to America's veterans, but the depth of its emotional access is unlike anything previously brought to the screen.
