The American Nurse will be screening at the Cinema Village for three nights, each of which will feature a special post-screening Q&A with filmmakers Carolyn Jones and Lisa Frank and special invited guests.


May 12th at 8:00pm

One of the stars of The American Nurse is Brian McMillion, an Army veteran and military nurse who rehabilitates wounded soldiers returning from war. As a way to honor Brian’s profession, the Q&A at the first Cinema Village screening is going to not only focus on America’s nurses, but also on America’s soldiers and veterans.

Another star of the film is Sister Stephen, a nun and Director of Nursing who has a unique view on healing and on life. Her story has helped to inspire our second Q&A, which will focus on the intersection between spirituality and nursing.

May 15th at 8:00pm

The final post-screening Q&A is going to focus on care at the end of life. All of the nurses featured in The American Nurse deal with death on a daily basis. One of the nurses interviewed for the project said “Death is inevitable. But Americans think that death is optional.” This Q&A discussion is meant to explore why we as a culture have such difficulty with the concept of death, and what we can learn from the nurses that are helping us through the end-of-life process.
