Screening: Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

Saturday, April 4, 2020

During the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Okinawa (April 1, 1945 – Jun 22, 1945), the MacArthur Memorial’s Military History Film Festival will continue with a screening of Hacksaw Ridge (2016). The film focuses on the experiences of a Virginian, Desmond Doss, an American combat medic who became the first conscientious objector to be awarded the Medal of Honor, for service above and beyond the call of duty during the Battle of Okinawa. Hacksaw Ridge is rated R for intense, realistically graphic sequences of war violence.
