Sundance Institute presents a Work-In-Progress Screening of the documentary Semper Fi: Always Faithful. Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger was a devoted Marine for nearly twenty-five years, indoctrinating thousands of new recruits in his role as drill instructor. When Jerry’s nine-year-old daughter dies of a rare type of leukemia, the grief-stricken father struggles to make sense of what happened. In his search for answers he discovers a Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history.
A Q&A with filmmakers Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon will follow the screening. (2011, 75 min. Dirs. Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon)
