Members Only Screening: THE HURT LOCKER Followed by a Q&A with Director Kathryn Bigelow and Screenwriter Mark Boal

“The Hurt Locker” is a riveting, suspenseful tale of the courage under fire of an elite group of young men tasked with one of the world’s most dangerous jobs: the technicians of a bomb squad who save lives and risk their own by disarming bombs in the midst of urban combat. Written by journalist and screenwriter Mark Boal, who was embedded with a special bomb unit in Iraq, the feature film is a thrillingly realistic story of survival, seen through the eyes of a mercurial commander (Jeremy Renner) and his two forceful subordinates (Anthony Mackie and Brian Geraghty). Set against the backdrop of 21st century counter-insurgency warfare, with a visual and emotional intensity that transports audiences to Iraq ‘s dizzying, 24-hour turmoil, “The Hurt Locker” is both a saga of contemporary heroism and a layered meditation on the soul-numbing rigors and potent allure of the modern battlefield.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with Director Kathryn Bigelow and Screenwriter Mark Boal.
