From War to Wisdom

From War to Wisdom

From War to Wisdom documents the epic journey of an elite group of warriors from FOX 2/5, the most decorated battalion in the United States Marine Corps. You will ride along with them through two combat tours in Iraq, follow them as they return to a civilian society that no longer makes sense, and witness their determined struggle to find new missions on the home front - new ways to serve their fellow veterans and the country at large. This unique, solution-focused documentary is a vivid, character-driven mosaic of the many ways these veterans continue to serve. Some help transition homeless veterans into employment and housing opportunities, others train service dogs to deal with symptoms of PTSD. Some are artists, others entrepreneurs, and all have dedicated their lives to serving their brothers and sisters in arms. Combat footage filmed by Vietnam Veteran and award-winning filmmaker Mike Cerre (GLOBE TV), who was embedded with FOX 2/5 during the invasion of Iraq and in Ramadi, is creatively woven throughout the film, often evoking the flashbacks that accompany PTSD, Hyper-vigilance, and Traumatic Brain Injury. Though many films have addressed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, none have told this unique story. This not a pro-war or anti-war film. It is a pro-veteran film, a film about solutions, a vision for a better future, a journey From War to Wisdom.

This is a really amazingly original movie: it's surprising actually, at first glance you'd think this must just be a good movie that made it to the cinemas - but it's more than a good movie! It brings and original story based plot with a new concept to it
