     WHAT:     SPECIAL SCREENING OF COLUMBIA PICTURES & REVOLUTION STUDIOS'
               TEARS OF THE SUN

               In director Antoine Fuqua's (Training Day) new action-adventure
               film, Bruce Willis stars as Lt. A.K. Waters, the loyal veteran
               officer of a Navy SEAL unit.  When he's sent into the heart of
               Africa, the usually hard-bitten Waters finds himself deeply
               conflicted at having to choose between following orders and the
               dictates of his own conscience.

               Though a fictionalization, Tears of the Sun deals with the
               gritty realism of human conflict as Lt. Waters travels to
               war-torn central Africa to rescue Dr. Lena Kendricks (Monica
               Bellucci), a U.S. citizen who runs a mission in the
               countryside.  But when Lt. Waters arrives, Dr. Kendricks
               refuses to abandon the refugees under her care.  She implores
               Waters to escort them on a dangerous trek through the dense
               jungle to the nearby border.  During the journey, the SEALs
               find themselves the unwitting guardians of a man sought by the
               rebel militia.  This further endangers their already hazardous
               mission, but all the while strengthening Waters' resolve to
               protect Lena and the refugees, and to deliver them safely
               across the border.
