POV Series with Community Conversations: "Of Men and War"
Film

Please join us for a series of POV documentary screenings, to be followed by panel discussions and community conversations facilitated by Window Seat Media and the Lacey Timberland Library. Our third film is "Of Men and War" by Laurent Bécue-Renard. The warriors in Of Men and War have come home, but their minds remain on the battlefield. Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan, consumed by anger and traumatic memories long after their return, often resort to drugs or suicide to end their suffering. But at The Pathway Home in California, a first-of-its-kind PTSD treatment center, soldiers resolve to stop the damage. Their therapist helps them forge meaning from their trauma. Over five years, the film follows the men and their families on their grueling paths to recovery as they attempt to make peace with their pasts, their loved ones and themselves.
