BANGOR — Maine native filmmaker Billy Hanson is set to honor Maine veterans with a screening of his film, “Bone Cold,” at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, at the Gracie Theater on the Husson University campus.

In 2019, Hanson brought a film crew from Los Angeles to Maine to shoot the psychological thriller, which follows two American snipers on a black-ops mission in Ukraine. The film uses elements of action, drama, and horror to explore themes of sacrifice, duty, the unseen wounds of combat, and the struggles of modern-day post-traumatic stress disorder, according to a news release from Hanson.

The screening is being held during Mental Health Awareness Month, with all proceeds going to benefit the Maine Veterans Project.

Led by Shawn “Doc” Goodwin and Adam Moskovitz, the Maine Veteran’s Project is an organization dedicated to serving Maine veterans in a direct effort to reduce veteran suicide. By fostering community connections and providing essential resources, MVP empowers veterans to thrive beyond their military service, ensuring they receive the care and recognition they deserve.
