SYNOPSIS:
Only 1% of Americans currently serve in the U.S. Military, and their families have borne the disproportionate burden of more than a decade at war. Many have turned to “Flat Daddies” and"Heroes on a Stick," life-sized cardboard cutouts of their husbands, wives, parents and children serving overseas, to ease the pain of repeated deployments. Using these two-dimensional surrogates as a connecting thread, the documentary film FLAT DADDY follows four such families over the course of a year to explore the lasting impact of the war on those left behind.(RT: 82 minutes)

ADDITIONAL INFO:
One of the film's four central stories depicts a year in the life of the Bugbee family of Caribou, ME, after the return of Maine National Guardsman Andrew Bugbee from Iraq to his wife, Andrea, and their two small children. Andrea Cole will appear with the directors, Nara Garber and Betsy Nagler, and David Duehring of the Maine National Guard Family Program and Military OneSource, for a Q&A and discussion following the screening on July 15th.
