“Soldiers’ Stories” Q&A: Iraq War Veterans and PTSD



Steve Greene, Assistant Editor at Criticwire, moderates a Q&A panel about the new documentary, “Soldiers’ Stories.” The producer, Nick Reed, discusses how the film documents the experiences of veterans and he hopes this will help people understand what they go through in wartime. The director, Jonathan Kitzen, talks about how they wanted to bring the past (WW1) into the present and the reaction of veterans to the film. Chris Lavarro, an Iraq War veteran and subject in the film, talks about how it was hard for him to talk to anyone but fellow veterans about his war experiences and PTSD issues.
