A Matter of Duty: an MPBN Special Documentary

Mar 18, 2014— 6:30 pm

A_Matter_of_DutyOn Tues, March 18th at 6:30 p.m. LPL is hosting the Maine Public Broadcasting Network for a special screening of their 2013 documentary, A Matter of Duty. This important film tells the stories of Maine soldiers who were deployed to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Gulf War and the Vietnam War and returned home to face a new, relentless enemy: post-traumatic stress disorder. PTSD is a condition that is not well understood here in Maine and it will have lasting implications for the entire state. It is a national epidemic.

Matter of Duty details Kennebec Sheriff Randy Liberty’s personal battle with PTSD and several veterans in his charge at the Kennebec County Jail. Liberty’s honesty about his own condition and his efforts to help other veterans vividly depicts the continuing impact of war on the men and women who have served our country.

Jennifer Rooks, host and Executive Producer of Maine Watch and winner of two regional Edward R. Murrow awards, and Charles C. Stuart, a recipient the George Foster Peabody and Alfred Dupont awards and eight national television EMMYs, have joined forces in A Matter of Duty to tell this story of the continuing war at home known as PTSD.

A short discussion will take place following the 60 minute film.

This film showing is a free, public event and no reservations are required. For further information, contact the LPL Adult Services Department at 513-3135 or LPLReference@LewistonMaine.gov
