LEWISBURG, Pa. — Bucknell University will host a screening of the film, ‘When I Came Home,” a documentary film about homeless veterans, Tuesday, March 6, at 7 p.m. in the Forum of the Elaine Langone Center.

Film director Dan Lohaus will discuss the documentary immediately afterward.

The film and the discussion, both of which are free to the public, are sponsored by the Office of the Provost at Bucknell.

“When I Came Home” tells the story of Iraq War veteran Herold Noel, who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and lives out of his car in Brooklyn.

Using Noel’s story as a fulcrum, this documentary examines the wider issue of homeless U.S. military veterans – from Vietnam to Iraq – who have to fight to receive the benefits promised to them by their government.

The film won the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival Documentary Award and is an official selection of the Silverdocs Documentary Festival of AFI/Discovery Channel.
