Telling: Gainesville

Please join military veterans and their families for a special Veterans Day film screening of the play “Telling Gainesville.”

The film captures the poignancy of veterans discussing combat experiences, loss of comrades, and post-war traumas. After the film screening, the play’s director, Jeffrey Pufahl, will hold a roundtable discussion with actor-veterans who will take questions from the audience. Jeffrey Pufahl is a Creative Campus Visiting Scholar in Residence at the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and a faculty member in UF’s Center for Arts in Medicine.

Telling Gainesville is part of a nationwide initiative supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Florida Humanities that connects civilian audiences with veterans in a creative, supportive environment. The program is part of the University of Florida’s, “Dialogues on the Experiences of War” and is sponsored by the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) Veterans’ History Project and the Center for European Studies, along with the UF Center for Arts in Medicine.
