July - Almost Sunrise: Hope is on the Horizon, 2016, 1 hr 38 mins 

Emmy-Nominated in 2018 for Outstanding Current-Affairs Documentary, Almost Sunrise is a story of veteran resilience and recovery. The film follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, who struggle with depression upon returning home from service. Fearful of succumbing to the epidemic of veteran suicide, they seek a lifeline and embark on a 2,700-mile walk across America as a way to confront their inner pain.

The film captures an intimate portrait of two friends suffering from the unseen wounds of war as they discover an unlikely treatment: the restorative power of silence and meditation.


The Community Resiliency programs are co-sponsored by Stevenson Grange #121 and Stevenson Community Library. For program information, please call Mary Repar at (360) 726-7052 or e-mail
