You've heard about it all over the place....now you have a chance to see it on the big screen and take part in helping the film succeed! Freedom from Despair, the critically acclaimed film by Brenda Brkusic is playing in many cities around the US, Canada and Australia this fall. Our tour begins August 20, 2005. These screenings are much needed fundraisers for the film and they are made possible by the Croatian National Association of Los Angeles. The filmmaker and the generous volunteers in each city would appreciate your attendance and support of this film. No other film tells the Croatian struggle for freedom to an English speaking audience. Preserve our true history and support the work of others who do good for all of us.
