Mike Collins, son of Shrewsbury Rotarian, Jack Collins, recently had his latest documentary film, Almost Sunrise, shown nationally on PBS in conjunction with their Veterans’ Day series.


Mike got his start as a film maker when a group of Shrewsbury Rotarians went on an exchange program to the Soviet Union. Mike's last film was nominated for an Emmy and this one on helping returning vets heal from the moral injury that so many of them face is winning acclaim across the entire country. It has been embraced by the VA social workers as well as national veterans organizations and military leaders. The documentary has played all across the country and has been shown at the Lincoln Center in NYC to full houses.
