Steeplechase Films says the film takes an "unflinching look at the reality of warfare and disability," using the voices of some of the country's most prominent disabled veterans as well as scholars in the fields of disability studies, history and psychology.


A preview of the film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Filmmaker Ric Burns
  • Actor and national veterans’ spokesman JR Martinez

It will be moderated by Carson Cooper, the host of WUSF’s weekly public affairs show.
