Jacksonville, FL (Merxwire) – The Jacksonville International Film Festival will take place November 15-17, 2019 at the San Marco Theater in Jacksonville. Over 80 films from all over the world, including American and local movies. One of the films “Love Separated in Life… Love Reunited in Honor” is a movie about the Jacksonville natives and the lost Vietnamese war heroes.
Tim Driscoll, Jacksonville Film Festival Program Director, said that he was very happy to share the wonderful collections of domestic and international films with the community at this year’s film festival. This film level is probably the best movie collection we have ever seen. The film production process has risen globally and we are the beneficiaries. Don’t miss this plan. Join us and become part of a special program.
San Francisco based writer/director Jackie Wright explains she is beyond thrilled that Tim Driscoll and his team included “Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor,” about the exhumation of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr., her father, from a deteriorating north Jacksonville cemetery to be reburied at Arlington National Cemetery, March 10, 2014, fifty years almost to the day of his death in Vietnam.
“My father was born in Jacksonville. Due to his death on March 9, 1964 early in the Vietnam War and his being an Honor Guard for then Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara on my Dad’s last mission, I saw news articles in the Florida Times Union and The Florida Star, the local Black newspaper. They were about the helicopter crash that claimed his life and that of a fellow soldier, his funeral at Grant Memorial AME Church and his burial at Mt. Olive Cemetery. The cemetery was well kept and honorable at the time,” said Wright. “And here we are fifty plus years later, Tim Driscoll and his team have included this documentary about one of Jacksonville’s native sons. I’m thrilled to the moon and back,” added Wright.
The 15-minute short documentary, “Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor,” co-directed and edited by Jack LiVolsi of San Francisco’s Jackson Street Partners, spans two continents covering 50 years.
“Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor” will screened on Saturday, November 16 th during the 12-noon “The Peace Your Valor Won” block in Theater 1 at the San Marco Theater, 1996 San Marco Boulevard.
