Black Hawk Down - Summer Film Fest July 20, 7:00 pm


The film takes place in 1993 when the U.S. sent Special Forces into Somalia to destabilize the government and bring food and humanitarian aid to the starving population. Using Black Hawk helicopters to lower the soldiers onto the ground, an unexpected attack by Somalian forces brings two of the helicopters down immediately. From there, the U.S. soldiers must struggle to regain their balance while enduring heavy gunfire.

Directed by Ridley Scott. Starring Josh Hartnett, Eric Bana, Ewan McGregor, Tom Sizemore, William Fichtner, and Sam Shepard. 2001. Rated R. 2h 32m.
