Coinciding with the theatrical release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, VICE News has posted their piece on Adam Driver and his organization Arts in the Armed Forces. The thirty minute mini-documentary culminates with footage taken during the company's trip to Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, in which Gibson had the pleasure to be included.
Cinemax's critically acclaimed original series THE KNICK premieres tonight. Gibson plays Harold Prettyman, an up-and-coming businessman who is looking for investors in his enterprise to build the subway system.
The entire series is directed, photographed, and edited by the extraordinary Steven Soderbergh.
The photograph above was taken on the set seen in Episode 1 at the groundbreaking of the construction site for the new Knickerbocker Hospital. Featured in the photograph (from l. to r.) are Charles Aitken (Henry Robertson), Wynn Harmon (Mayor Van Wyck), Andrew Rannells (Frazier Wingo), Jeremy Bobb (Herman Barrow), and Gibson Frazier.
Gibson has just returned from Kuwait where he had the honor of performing for a coalition of international troops at Camp Arifjan Army Base.
Arts in the Armed Forces, an organization founded by Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker to bring theatre to active duty personnel, veterans, and their families, invited Gibson and a handful of other actors including Natasha Lyonne, Jay O. Sanders, Kristine Nielsen, Armando Riesco, and Saidah Arrika Ekulona to perform pieces from contemporary American plays. There was even a film crew from the news channel VICE in tow as they're putting together a piece on AITAF.
It was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience for everyone involved. And above are several photographs from the trip.
