Welcome to the "American Heart" newsletter!

Today we are launching our newsletter to keep friends and fans up-to-date on the latest news surrounding the documentary film American Heart. If you're receiving this, chances are you've expressed interest in the cross-cultural healthcare documentaries of Chris Newberry and Free Country Media. That, or a friend or colleague has referred us to you. Either way, if you choose not to receive the newsletter, you may unsubscribe at any time.

Update: American Heart unveiled in Minneapolis!

American Heart enjoyed its official premiere on April 18 at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival. Audiences responded enthusiastically, so much so that we were asked back for three additional screenings and the film was awarded the Audience Choice Award! It was quite a whirlwind, and we'll spell it out in more detail in our next newsletter.

Celebrate World Refugee Day - tomorrow! (June 20)

   American Heart brings to light the refugee experience in America today. So it's only appropriate that World Refugee Day 2013 is the first day of our new outreach initiative, "Twelve Months of American Heart." Throughout the next year, we'll be hosting discussions, presenting at film festivals, taking part in symposiums, and generally letting the film guide us to wherever there is an eager audience. So, tomorrow, join us in beginning our countdown to World Refugee Day 2014!

We'd love to hear from you! If you'd like to host a screening, let us know.

We need you!
