Film Explores the Healing Powers of Flyfishing   

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

The Monadnock International Film Festival presents the documentary "Not Yet Begun To Fight" as part of their ongoing series. 

The film will screen at 7 p.m. on Nov. 7 at the Peterborough Community Theatre, in honor of Veterans Day.

Local filmmaker Sabrina Lee will lead a Q&A following the screening of her film.

This award-winning documentary offers an unconventional look at the impact of war and the journey to recovery, as a group of injured veterans learn the zen of fly fishing in Montana.

“Not Yet Begun to Fight” has received numerous festival prizes and was hand-picked by world-renowned film critic Roger Ebert to screen at his personal film festival.  The film also was designated as a New York Times "Top Pick for Television” upon its National Broadcast Premiere on PBS. Please visit www.notyetbeguntofightfilm.com to watch a trailer and learn more about the film.

Tickets are $5 for MONIFF members (Fanatic members free), $10 for not-yet members. A membership discount will be available for one night only for new members who sign up that evening. Veterans (with I.D.) and their families will be admitted for free.

A special bonus for the evening will be a raffle for a free pair of film passes to the next film festival which will be held April 19-22.
