I was just chatting with my university pal Erin, a former co-worker from my days at the University of Texas newspaper. Erin is the Features Editor for the Killeen Daily Herald, the paper of Killeen, TX and Fort Hood.
She often relays interesting stories about life in an Army Fort town. Tonight, she was telling me about a special screening she attended. Apparently, the Fort hosted a screening of Gunner Palace, the doc picked up by Palm Pictures from the Toronto Film Festival in September. Gunner Palace is due to be released later in 2005, but it seems that (besides festival stops) the film is making its way to military audiences.
Anyway, Erin interviewed director Michael Tucker and you can find her story this weekend on the paper’s Web site.
