“Our Way Home” is a student produced, professionally filmed documentary follows the homecoming stories of nine veterans from WW2 to present day. “Our Way Home” focuses on the psychological effects of war, specifically Post Traumatic Stress. The film will directly show how the nation’s culture affects Veteran’s homecomings. This project will benefit veterans, their families, and community members nationwide. Our premier will be at Soldiers and Sailors Pavilion on November 12, 2015. During the day, we will host the screening to university students followed by an optional discussion group. At night we will host the premier for the Pittsburgh community followed by an interactive discussion panel.
There are dozens of organizations working on behalf Post Traumatic Stress in the Pittsburgh area alone. The difference between Our Way Home and those organizations is that they offer aid and services, while we hope to create a community for veterans to engage in dialogue about their illness and educate the community about PTS through the film and discussion panels.
