One of the highlights of making films is the new friends we make along the way. We recently connected with Jaeson (Doc) Parsons of The Graffiti of War Project, an organization whose soul purpose is, “To provide the world with a unique glimpse into the lives of those who experienced modern warfare through documenting and displaying the art they created…Our Mission is that through sharing these images, we will begin a dialog between soldier and civilian, to bridge this ever-widening divide between those who have endured the misery of war and those who can only imagine the horrors. To bring understanding awareness and true empathy of what these men and women–soldier and civilian–experienced during combat. That is our purpose…”
We believe in the power of creative expression in all forms. Painting, writing, photography, sculpture, dance, music, theater, film, and so much more. We are thrilled to discover and introduce Doc’s important work, because we have seen first-hand the healing, understanding, and empathy that comes from art created by combat veterans.
We are humbled by Doc’s invitation to write a guest piece about our films BRAVO! COMMON MEN, UNCOMMON VALOR and I MARRIED THE WAR for his project’s website. Here is a link to the blog that sheds a light on how our films came to be: Blog link
