Join us for a free screening of an important new documentary

 


 

Until They’re Gone is a film about landmines, the people who remove them, and hope.

 

Specifically, it is about Bill and Jill Morse, a retired American couple living permanently in Cambodia. This documentary, from filmmaker Christopher Lockett, details their work with Landmine Relief Fund.

 

Inspired by the work of Aki Ra - a former Khmer Rouge conscripted child soldier forced to lay landmines, turned deminer as an adult - the Morses founded Landmine Relief Fund, a U.S.-based non-governmental organization (NGO) that raises money for Aki Ra's demining team, Cambodia Self Help Demining.

 

Join us for a free screening of this thought-provoking documentary, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker and subjects of the film.

Learn more about the documentary at the Until They're Gone website

Please Be Advised: This film contains some graphic images of the effects of landmines on the human body.
