4th Annual GI Film Festival San Diego
Sep 30 all-day

“When the Smoke Clears: A Story of Brotherhood, Resilience and Hope” tells the true stories of young Israeli soldiers whose injuries leave them fighting for the strength to live. Making breakthroughs and finding meaning by reaching out to those in need, they discover that what didn’t kill them really did make them stronger. The film shares the accounts of Gil, Ofer, and Elad – young war veterans whose unthinkable battle experiences leave them with life-altering mental and physical scars. Returning to society, their trauma disconnects them from all they once valued, turning their lives upside down. When all seems lost, a revolutionary idea gives them the hope, courage, tools and community to survive, and to embrace their identities as heroes both on and off the battlefield. Banding together in a family of wounded soldiers, they learn to face their obstacles together and discover that in conquering their pain, they might have more to offer than ever before.

  • “When the Smoke Clears” will screen during the GI Film Festival San Diego on Sunday, Sept. 30 at 6 p.m. at UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas at Hazard Center.
