Storyented, Raymond Arroyo: A conversation with Mel Gibson
October 20, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Award-winning journalist, producer, and New York Times Bestselling author Raymond Arroyo speaks with award-winning film actor, director and producer, Mel Gibson. Gibson will discuss his work as a Catholic storyteller and his upcoming film “Hacksaw Ridge.” This film depicts the true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life – without firing a shot – to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.
This is a ticketed event.
Screening of Hacksaw Ridge: 4 – 6 p.m.
Reception: 6 – 7 p.m.
Arroyo in conversation with Mel Gibson: 7 – 8 p.m.
