You are Invited to a Movie Premiere Tonight!

One of my friends, Pascal Depuhl, who I’ve always known as a photographer, has dipped his feet into the world of film-making.  Actually, he’s probably waist deep in film making at this point–he’s made an extraordinary short documentary called On Wings of Hope. It’s an amazing story, but the story of his involvement in this project is an even MORE amazing God Story and will give you goosebumps! The film premiere is TONIGHT in Fort Lauderdale and he’s allowing me to invite my readers!

Here’s the premise of the film:

A young boy is badly injured, when he is hit by a motor cycle, that fractures his head and leaves him unconscious. Cut off from the only doctor that can help him, by snowed in mountain passes, his family arranges for an airlift to Kabul. The crew of Pactec, the only humanitarian flight service in Afghanistan, prepares a small plane that can land on the snow packed runway to medevac the boy.

The film follows the pilots and support staff of Pactec, as they serve the people of Afghanistan by providing air support and communication service for over 200 NGO’s, who in turn are enabled to serve the afghan people by the technology that Pactec provides.  It features interviews with aid workers, pilots, crew and their Afghan staff and gives a glimpse of how these men and their families directly and indirectly impact afghan society.  It also shows a beautiful side of the country, which is rarely seen.

Here’s a sneak peek:

The film premieres tonight with a huge event at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, with the actual plane parked next to the screen.  Pascal will introduce the movie, by telling you how this whole project came to life, before the short documentary is shown. Following the movie, one of the pilots featured in the film will talk about the organization, who this film is about and the evening will wrap up with a Q&A session and a meet and greet social with the filmmaker and pilot.

Let me know if you’d like to attend and I can arrange for free admission!  WOOT!
