Of Men and War

Of Men and War
Documentary, War | 2014 | NR. 1hr 43min
DIRECTOR: Laurent Becue-Renard ONE DAY ONLY

Anger consumes a squad of combat vets years after they return from the front. The dozen warriors in Of Men and War come home to the United States, but their minds are stuck out on the battlefield. Like figures from a Greek tragedy, all have traumatic memories that haunt them to this day. Ghosts and echoes of the war fill their lives. Wives, children, and parents bear the brunt of their fractured spirits. At The Pathway Home, a pioneering PTSD therapy center, the protagonists resolve to end the ongoing destruction. Their therapist is a Vietnam vet himself, helping the boys forge meaning from their senseless trauma. Over years of therapy, Of Men and War explores their grueling paths to recovery, as they attempt to make peace with themselves, their past, and their families.


Dave Dittemore from Veterans for Peace will be joining us for a special Veteranís Day screening of Of Men and War on Wednesday, November 11th, 6:30 p.m. Join us for a discussion after the screening.
