A refreshing and poetic insight into the experience of post-traumatic stress disorder told from the perspective of a young Iraq war veteran.
“..opens up a startling world in the shortest of time and forcefully narrates from the inner perspective of a young U.S. soldier in the Iraq War, who is confronted with death and killing.”
Michael Ergo looks like a typical guy in his early 20s but one thing sets him apart, only a few years before he was fighting insurgents in the Iraq war. Cleverly told through the story of Michael’s tattoos – tattoos that mark his personal journey as both solider and veteran, this film is a deep and personal account on one man’s experience with PTSD.
“… this short documentary is a valuable teaching tool because it presents a counterpoint to media depictions of war which begin and end on the battlefield.”
“..it brings forth constructive discussions about the totality of war in ways that a textbook may not.”
