Join us for a very special screening of …As If They Were Angels, followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Terry Strauss. Two months after Pearl Harbor and the US entry into World War II, a pair of destroyers escorted a supply ship through the treacherous North Atlantic to a base in Newfoundland. A nasty storm, combined with an officer’s reluctance to trust his experienced navigator and new radar system, ran ships aground on the rocks of adjacent coves. More than 200 American sailors lost their lives, but nearly as many were rescued by local miners and townspeople. 313-881-7511
