Thomas Young, VeteranBody of War (2007)  is an intimate and transformational feature documentary about the true face of war today. You will meet Tomas Young, 25 years old, paralyzed from a bullet to his spine – wounded after serving in Iraq for less than a week.  Body of War is Tomas’ coming home story as he evolves into a new person, coming to terms with his disability and finding his own unique and passionate voice against the war. The film is produced and directed by Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro, and features two original songs by Eddie Vedder. Body of War is a naked and honest portrayal of what it’s like inside the body, heart and soul of this extraordinary and heroic young man. Body of War unfolds on two parallel tracks. On the one hand, we see Tomas evolving into a powerful voice against the war, and on the other, we see the historic debate unfolding in the Congress about going to war in Iraq.

Come enjoy the film, and stay for the facilitated discussion to follow.  Organic popcorn & refreshments will be available.
