About This Event
Body of War is an intimate feature documentary about the truth of war today. 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 his coming home story as he evolves into a new person, dealing with his disability and finding his own unique and passionate voice against the war. Body of War is a nakedly honest portrayal of what it's like inside the body, heart, and soul of this young man. The film is produced and directed by Phil Donahue and Ellen Spiro and features two original songs written and performed by Eddie Vedder.
