Free Showings of film “Project 22” Nov. 6 & 7

Two free showings of the documentary film "Project 22" will be held Friday, Nov. 6 and Saturday, Nov. 7 at 4:30 p.m. at Linn-Benton Community College’s Russell Tripp Performance Center, Takena Hall, 6500 Pacific Blvd. SW, Albany.

The film chronicles the 22-day, 6,500-mile journey of two combat-wounded veterans, Daniel Egbert and Doc King, who set out across America to raise awareness of the high rate of suicides amongst veterans. 

Spurred by estimations that 22 veterans die by suicide each day, Project 22 includes interviews with veterans who have contemplated or attempted suicide, but who found help, support and hope in various ways.

The film includes interviews with leading researchers in the fields of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress, mental health clinicians and educators, and leading experts in warrior culture and combat stress.

Project 22 was entirely crowd-funded. The film was produced by Medicinal Missions, which works to restore a warrior culture that supports holistic healing and life-long personal growth, while empowering veterans to serve as community leaders and mentors.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments provided after the film.
