MOORE, Okla. – A “groundbreaking and immersive feature film” will be premiering in the Sooner State.

Mike Boettcher, the subject of the new film “The Hornet’s Nest,” along with co-director David Salzberg will be in attendance at the premiere at the Warren Theatre in Moore. Utilizing real footage, the film tells Mike’s story – that of a photojournalist and his son, Carlos, who spent years embedded with U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Tonight in Ponca City, Mike and Carlos Boettcher, along with co-directors Christian Tureaud and David Salzberg and Country music sensation Wynonna Judd and her husband Cactus Moser will be in attendance at the premiere and fundraiser at the Poncan Theatre, at 7 p.m.

The proceeds from the Ponca City premiere will be donated to a  Veterans Memorial project spearheaded by Mike’s brother and Ponca City lawyer, native and philanthropist, Fred Boettcher.
