Film Screening: Service to Man

Join filmmaker Aaron Greer for a viewing and a discussion of the soon to be released, Tallgrass Film Festival nominee, Service to Man.

Short synopsis: Two outsiders from radically different backgrounds struggle to find common purpose within the pressure cooker of Nashville’s all-black medical school in the 1960's. When everyone was choosing sides, they chose each other.

The film is about race, social justice, a country in transition during the peak of Martin Luther King Jr.'s  work, and so much more. The film is based on a true story at Nashville, Tennessee's Meharry Medical College during the 1960's. Meharry’s motto was "Worship of God Through Service to Mankind.” 

About Aaron Greer: Aaron Greer is an award-winning, independent filmmaker whose work has screened on public TV and film festivals world-wide. The Chicago-based filmmaker is also an Associate Professor at Loyola University, where he directs the Film and Digital Media program. He is a cousin of JRC members Beth Lange and Robert Lange.
