Iraq War vets in focus

Two short films by New England documentarian Sara Nesson, "Poster Girl" and "Iraq Paper Scissors," will screen at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 23, ArtRage Gallery, 505 Hawley St. $10; 218-5711.

"Poster Girl," which was nominated for an Academy Award, focuses on a cheerleader who becomes a machine-gunner in the Iraq War, before returning to the States to fight a different kind of battle. "Iraq Paper Scissors" is Nesson's work-in-progress that takes viewers into the lives of five Iraq War veterans who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Following the screenings, Nesson will discuss her work with the ArtRage audience.
