On April 12th 2007 Member of the 501st came together to help support, and
promote the long awaited showing of "Heart of an Empire" A documentary film
about "The life and times of the 501st". at the Wisconsin Film Festival in
Most of us arrived at just before 2pm, for our seek peek at the film in the
green room of the theater by the producer and creator of the film, Jay.

After seeing the film we all suited up and took to the streets. We invaded most

took pics, chate with the locals and spread the word about HOAE and had a great
time. We trooped until about 9:30pm when the show stated.
