Screening of the documentary To What Remains will be followed by a post-film conversation with Project Recover's Pat Scannon and Derek Abbey. This event is hosted by the Cline Center for Advanced Social Research.

For nearly three decades, Dr. Pat Scannon has been leading volunteer efforts to find America’s missing in action from past wars. Founder of Project Recover, a nonprofit that employs 21st-century technology and academic expertise to bring closure to MIA families, Dr. Scannon will be joined by Project Recover CEO Derek Abbey for a screening of the recently-released documentary “To What Remains” and a post-film conversation about the race to bring MIAs home before the window to find them closes.

This event will be both in-person (at Lincoln Hall Theater) and livestreamed. Please RSVP here: (online streaming information will be provided to everyone who RSVPs)
