MEN GO TO BATTLE Plays Rooftop Films' Summer Series on July 3

We have FREE tickets to watch one of the most sought out titles from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. The award-winning Men Go to Battle is a Civil War epic of intimate proportions .

Rooftop Films' Summer Series, which is quickly becoming one of New York City's coolest summer pastimes, allows film lovers to see some of the most buzzed-about indie films in large (and cheap!) outdoor screenings all across Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens through the end of August.

This weekend is your chance to catch up with one of the most sought out titles from the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival. The award-winning Men Go to Battle, an inventive blend of Civil War epic and intimate, DIY indie will be playing July 3, followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Zachary Treitz.

Some first-time filmmakers working with small budgets take the relatively easy way out and just shoot a bunch of actors talking to each other in a room for 80 minutes, but not Zachary Treitz. Basically doing the hardest thing possible for a rookie director with minimal funds, the Kentucky-born and New York-based rookie made a Civil War period drama, and it’s as deeply realized and authentic as any Hollywood-backed Civil War film you can think of, if not more so than most. Which is why Treitz won the Best New Narrative Director prize at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival for Men Go to Battle, following its world premiere. And now you can see why.

Men Go to Battle will have its first post-TFF screening this Friday night, July 3. In Men Go to Battle, two confederate brothers living in Kentucky do their best to keep their land secure as Union troops intrude and a charming woman comes in between them. It’s an intimate story, the kind most first-time directors tackle, but with the added difficulties and resulting impressiveness that come from transplanting commonplace themes over 150 years in the past.
