Here's an excerpt below.

Throughout Of Men and War, Bécue-Renard allows the audience to feel the soldiers' alienation from society—the divorce they feel between the profession that's potentially ruined them and the personal lives that helped them survive war only to subsequently fail to match the fantasies that sustained them for so long.

You can learn more about the film and the five year process that director Laurent Bécue-Renard underwent to shoot and edit the 300+ hours of footage by visiting the film's website menandwar.com.

Of Men and War at the Bend Film Festival in Oregon

Last Friday (10/9), Of Men and War screened at the Bend Film Festival to a packed house. From our friends at the festival we've heard that almost everybody that watched the film stayed for a very lively panel discussion afterwards as well.

That panel included Alison Perry, the incredibly eloquent Director of the Central Oregon Veteran's Ranch; John Middlesworth, a Vietnam vet and counselor from the VA who just relocated to Oregon from California where he was very familiar with the Pathway Home and had even counseled one of the men in the film; and Andy Durham, a PTSD counselor and Iraq and Afghanistan veteran. It was a very thoughtful, heartfelt and eye-opening discussion.

We are overjoyed to know that people across the country are interested in learning more about the daily struggles veterans face and how we can be more helpful. You can learn more about the veterans that we worked with by visiting www.pathwayhome.org
