“In Service” multimedia event premieres tonight

Photo taken by CNN correspondent Lisa Rose Weaver when she was an embedded reporter in Iraq (copied from City Paper)An important and interesting event is premiering tonight in Pittsburgh, involving Pittsburgh Filmmakers and the Bricolage Theatre group. The event is called In Service.

It’s part documentary, part live oration, with several local Iraqi war veterans coming out onstage, live, to tell their stories to the audience firsthand because they’re frustrated with the way the war is being portrayed in the media. Others will have their stories depicted via film.

City Paper has a good article on this as well, “Front Lines.”

October 4th-21st, (Thursday-Sunday performances)
Harris Theatre

As I noted above, the premiere is tonight. Find out more at the Pittsburgh Filmmakers website or the Bricolage website.
