A patient treated at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors Hospital will be part of the Georgia premiere of a documentary on burn patients Wednesday in Augusta.

The film “Trial By Fire: Lives Reforged” will be shown at 1 p.m. at Georgia Regents University Maxwell Theatre. It is part of the 25th Anniversary celebration of the Southeastern Firefighters Burn Foundation.

Connor McKemey, who was treated at the Augusta burn center, along with his mother, Karin, are two of the people featured in the documentary, along with J.R. Martinez of “Dancing with the Stars” fame. The McKemeys and the filmmakers will take questions after the movie concludes.
