By greenroomwire

HBO and Bright House Networks will co-host the Tampa Bay premiere of Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq on Friday, September 7, at an invitation-only screening event at St. Petersburg's Mahaffey Theater at The Progress Energy Center. Marine Corporal Michael Jernigan, a native of St. Petersburg, is featured in the documentary film and is confirmed to attend along with his family.

Three-time Emmy(R) winner James Gandolfini returns to HBO with the documentary special Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq, his first project after The Sopranos -- and the first production for his Attaboy Films. Debuting Sunday, September 9th on HBO, the documentary about wounded Marines and soldiers surveys the physical and emotional cost of war through memories of their "alive day," the day they narrowly escaped death in Iraq.

Gandolfini, who has visited the troops in Iraq on behalf of the USO, serves as executive producer. In ALIVE DAY MEMORIES he interviews 10 soldiers who reveal their feelings on their future, their severe disabilities and their devotion to America.

Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq is a multi-platform event. The documentary will be available on HBO On Demand from Sept. 10 through Oct. 8, and will be streamed on beginning Sept. 10. In addition to streaming the entire film, will feature extensive soldier profiles, including personal videos and blogs, as well as exclusive portraits by acclaimed photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. HBO Video releases the film on DVD Oct. 23.
