The Secret Life of Veterans
Did you know that there are over 860,000 American veterans in need of help? Wars affect us in many ways, stretching families to the breaking point and taking a heavy toll on soldiers living with the consequences of combat.
Moved by these hidden costs of war, Chris Martini’s new film, Trooper, features Murphy O’Shea who returns from Iraq, traumatized by his experience. O’Shea’s father, a Vietnam veteran is on his deathbed. The movie follows this military father-son dynamic as they attempt to heal.
Watch as Chris discusses the process behind the film, his inspirations, and the reception among veterans.
