Beyond the Call, by Adrian Belic, will play in Charleston as part of the Southern Circuit Film Series. The film is about those who are willing to risk their lives to supply needed food and medicine.

Here's a bit about the film from the festival:
Ed Artis, James Laws and Walt Ratterman are three middle-aged men whose idea of adventure is taking desperately needed food and medicine into the world’s most forbidding yet naturally beautiful places, often at the front lines of war.

Following the motto of “High Adventure and Service to Humanity,” their specialty is going where death from landmines, bullets or bombs is as frequent as death from hunger, disease or the elements, helping out in places that other aid organizations deem too dangerous. One of the most honored documentaries in recent memory, “Beyond the Call” inspires as it entertains. The film has screened at more than 100 film festivals on five continents and has garnered 35 awards. Premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, this compelling story has received the Washington DC International Film Festival Audience Award, the Telluride Mountain Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, the Palm Springs International Film Festival Best of Festival award, the Santa Fe Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, and the Taos Film Festival Human Rights Award, among numerous other awards and honors.

The film plays at 8 p.m. Friday, October 10 at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, at 54 St. Philip Street.

Belic will be available for a Q&A after the showing.
