STAND DOWN SOLDIER + Q&A after the screening
The life of women in the military is seldom portrayed.
The drama Stand Down Soldier by Jeryl Prescott Sale, tells the story of Sergeant Stacy Armstrong who returns home from three deployments suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Soon after her return, she and her husband find their 20-year marriage is about to be another casualty of war. Infidelity, addiction, and a tragic accident test the couples commitment.
This fiction film explores some of the issues many returning soldiers confront in their civil life including mental health issues, loneliness, and drug addiction for self-medication.
(Dir. by Jeryl Prescott Sale, 2014, USA, 82mins, Drama, English)
