Farmer/Veteran, an independent documentary film, is about one Veteran's post-deployment struggle with PTSD and other issues. The filmmakers are committed to distributing this documentary for free to audiences in North Carolina with the hope that this documentary will initiate a dialogue about how communities might improve care for Veterans and their families. According to the film's website: "Home from three combat tours in Iraq, Alex Sutton forges a new identity as a farmer, hatching chicks and raising goats on 43 acres in rural North Carolina. He dives into life on the farm with his new love Jessica, but cannot shake the lingering traumas of war. The stories he tells about battlefield experiences become unmoored from reality as he cycles between states of heightened awareness and "feeling zombified" from a cocktail of prescriptions meant to keep him stable." PBS will nationally broadcast the film on Memorial Day to an estimated 2.5 million viewers. See the trailer or view the full one-hour version. The password is sutton.
