Bring Recovering to your hometown
Imagine a diverse audience — some with family ties to the military; others without — sitting in the same room to see a film about troops healing their wounds. Imagine a conversation about war-caused post-traumatic stress and brain injuries and learning that PTSD and TBI are challenges that can be overcome. Imagine a conversation about how to help the troops come home from war.
Because that conversation is needed, we filmed “Recovering,” about troops healing the wounds of war.
In the past year, we’ve heard you are excited. We’ve heard you and your groups want to bring “Recovering” to your town because it is time to welcome the troops home and help them heal.
We’ve heard great ideas like this:
- How about screening of the film and a community discussion with veterans?
- How about a screening of the film and a community bicycle ride to honor vets?
Our response, “Yes. We love it!” Yet because this is a grassroots film with very little in the way of funding, we’ve wondered how to make those ideas a reality.
Instead of selling tickets to event-screenings in late 2013, when the film is released, we are asking communities — you! — to hold the events and we’ll provide the essential elements that you need to make it a success.
You will get…
- The film to screen in a location you decide
- A package of proven materials to make your event a success
- Contact and coordination with Michael de Yoanna, an award-winning journalist and director of the film
- Connections with vets in your area to make your event a success.
In exchange, we ask that you or your group, veteran’s hall, company, town or organization donate $600 to the film. The funds will go to post-production work and additional filming to finish this project. We’re not taking a hardline on this. If you can’t afford $600, we’ll find a way to get the film to your community. On the other hand, we think the amount is fair. It’s a simple yard sale or Apple pie bake sale to bring this event to your community and to help us finish the film. We think involving you at the local level will truly make this film an event because every American community needs individuals like you to become personally involved in welcoming home veterans returning from war.
