Event description

Description


Join us at The Military Museums for an inspirational evening screening of Bards of War followed by a Q & A session with filmmaker Scott Kesterson (via Skype) and the Canadian Armed Forces members present in his documentary.

"In July of 2006 filmmaker and citizen journalist Scott Kesterson was asked to cover Operation Mountain Thrust. The operation was led by COL Ian Hope, commander of Canada’s Task Force Orion. The mission was to attack Taliban sanctuaries in key areas of Kandahar and Helmand Provinces. These areas were a hotbed of insurgent activity, and the center point for their opium production, finance and terror operations.

Kesterson was attached to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, known as the “Patricia’s”. The events that unfolded were an awakening, showing Canada and the world that the soldiers of this quiet neighbor up north understood the meaning of conviction, ruthlessness and righteousness."

Admission is free by donation (recommended $10).
