Kris "Tanto" Paranto '13 Hours' in Bengazi

I am grateful for all of my supporters and appreciate the IndieLounge providing a platform for me to speak. I look forward to the Sundance Film Festival 2016.

The Sundance Film Festival, leaning historically on the liberal side of filmmaking, will serve as the backdrop for military veteran and conservative war hero Kris “Tanto” Paronto. Kris will share personal insight on the film '13 Hours' on Tues.,Jan. 26, 2016 exclusively at the #IndieLounge.

'13 Hours,' a Hollywood blockbuster movie directed by Michael Bay, is the story of six men who defied orders to stand down during an attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi, leaving the US Ambassador and other colleagues dead. Kris Paronto leads the discussion for this one night only, epic and controversial event. “We felt compelled to bring Kris to Park City specifically during this festival to share with our fellow filmmakers the power of what '13 hours' has become,” said event producer Melissa Jensen.

Movie critics have commented with mixed political opinions, but all can agree production value and story line are among the best that Hollywood has to offer. A truly graphic account of his time in Benghazi, Michael Bay has taken words scribbled from a page and illuminated them onto the big screen.

Kris will take the opportunity to share the reality of war, his passion, and ambitious plans for the future with guests of the #IndieLounge. Guests can expect to hear stories of his combat experience but also those of others who have served our country in a detailed Q&A. "I am grateful for all of my supporters and appreciate the #IndieLounge providing a platform for me to speak." Kris Paronto said. "I look forward to the Sundance Film Festival.

There will be photo opportunities with Kris “Tanto” Paronto for audience members and press and media alike. A tribute to all those currently fighting for our country and those left behind, Kris Paronto and #IndieLounge proudly dedicate this event.
