Copperhead film screening and Q&A with screenwriter Bill Kauffman.
Hosted by Dr. Frank Bergmann.
Copperhead is a film of the war at home – of a family ripped apart, of fathers set against sons and daughters, of a community driven to an appalling act of vengeance against a man who insists on exercising his right to free speech during wartime. Come view the film and stay for a Q&A with the screenwriter.
