“Not Yet Begun to Fight” to Premiere at Atlanta Film Festival

March 19, 2012 By: Benjamin Clary

On March 24, the Atlanta Film Festival will host the world premiere of the documentary “Not Yet Begun to Fight.”  The documentary is about veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars who find solace in fly fishing.

“A retired Marine Colonel reaches out to five men, a new generation returning from combat. He brings them to the river. He puts a fly rod into their hand, teaches them to cast, and shares his secret: there are places where you can still be consumed by a simple act, find joy in a fight, and be redeemed as you gently release another creature, unharmed, into quiet waters.”
