A film by San Francisco publicist Jackie Wright, founder of Wright Enterprises and Jack LiVolsi, CEO and Founder of San Francisco's Jackson Street Productions will screen this Veterans Day Week at the Jacksonville Film Festival. "Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor" written and directed by Wright with LiVolsi as co-director and editor is among the festival selections.
The 12th Annual Jacksonville Film Festival will showcase 101 films representing 21 countries with 26% directed by Women. It will be held at the historic San Marco Theatre, 1996 San Marco Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida, November 15-17, 2019.
"We're excited to celebrate Jacksonville's motion picture history this festival year. With 21 countries getting represented, we're happy to bring a global film perspective to our city," said Nick Logoreci, Jacksonville Film Festival Director.
"I'm thrilled to be able to share with our community this fantastic collection of international, domestic and local films at this year's festival," said Tim Driscoll, Jacksonville Film Festival Program Director.
"Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor" will be screened on Saturday, November 16th during the "The Peace Your Valor Won" block from 12-noon in Theater One of the historic San Marco Theatre. It precedes "Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn," directed by Zachary Stauffer. The efforts of Nicole Van Dorn, the widow of Wes Van Dorn, a 29 year old U.S. Naval Academy graduate and father of two, spurred an investigation that uncovered a long history of negligence and institutional failings around the 53E helicopter—the model Van Dorn was piloting when he was killed, and the deadliest aircraft in the US military.

Background on "Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor"
The Internet allowed the Wright Family to find out the circumstances of the March 9, 1964 death of Sp5 Wyley Wright Jr., whose last of over 300 missions, two weeks before returning home, was as an honor guard for Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara of San Francisco, who was viewing the troops.
"Love Separated in Life…Love Reunited in Honor" chronicles the exhumation of Sp5 Wright from a segregated cemetery in Jacksonville, Florida and reburial with his widow, March 10, 2014 at Arlington National Cemetery, fifty years and a day after his death. It also includes a trip to Vietnam where the Wright sisters find "The Shannon Wright Compound" named for 1Lt. Kenneth A. Shannon and Sp5 Wyley Wright of the 114th Aviation Company (Knights of the Air) in Vinh Long, Vietnam.
