Documenting 'Danger'

Steve Metze, a National Guardsman and Desert Storm vet, was teaching film at UT when he was deployed to Iraq. He took his camera with him, aiming to capture, in his words, "no bias, no headline, just the day-to-day reality of life in Iraq balancing the defense of an entire base with the struggle to keep my brand new family together." (Metze shipped out nine days after getting married; his first child was born while he was away.)

Filmmakers Steve Metze and Don Swaynos will be in attendance at a special Austin Film Festival sponsored screening of Year at Danger (Danger was the name of Metze's basecamp in Iraq) on Thursday, June 12, 7:30pm at the Regal Arbor Cinema (9828 Great Hills Trail). The event is free for AFF members and $4 for the general public. For more info, go here.
