#616 “Island Soldier” – – follows members of the Nena family from one of the most remote islands in the world to the training grounds of Texas and the battlefields in Afghanistan. The death of Sapuro “Sapp” Nena in Afghanistan makes waves through his tiny home island of Kosrae – where nearly everyone is connected to the U.S. Military directly or through family members. In an attempt to heal from his own deep wounds, Sapuro’s best friend in the Army, Mario Robles, heads to Kosrae with his family to meet Sapp’s parents for the first time and pay his respects on Veteran’s Day. It is an emotional gathering of two families, from opposite sides of the world, brought together by loss, love and honor. Airs 5/28 at 8 p.m.; 5/29 at midnight; 5/29 at 8 a.m.; 5/29 at 2 p.m.

Independent Lens

Each week Independent Lens brings you an original documentary film made by one of the best independent filmmakers working today.

  • #1920 “Served Like a Girl” –  – Director Lysa Heslov’s powerful documentary, SERVED LIKE A GIRL, follows several American women who were wounded in action and are now transitioning from soldier to civilian after serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. Struggling with PTSD, homelessness, broken families, divorce, serious illness, and military sexual abuse, these remarkable women harness humor to adapt to the emotional, social and economic challenges they face, through the MS. VETERAN AMERICA competition. Balancing beauty and brawn, they are guided by event founder and veteran Major Jas Boothe, using the competition to regain their identities and way of life that they sacrificed in foreign wars.  It is an engaging and honest look at an often unseen veteran reality.
