The National Veterans Foundation is proud to present a new veteran suicide prevention short film, Until We Get Home.
Written and directed by Scott McCullough and produced by Windy Buhler and Edge of Reason Productions, the film features well-known actor, activist and NVF Honorary Board Member, Martin Sheen. Award-winning director Scott McCullough and producer Windy Buhler created Until We Get Home in response to the horrifying number of veteran suicides. In simple settings, in their own voices, vets talk about suicide in a way the public rarely has a chance to hear.
Appearing with Sheen (who also appears in NVF public service announcements) are veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Among them, Sgt. Major Jesse Acosta, who’s been a subject of one of our Huffington Post blogs. The film also includes actors from the play Ajax in Iraq, a drama that braids the story of men and women vets in Iraq with the story of the Greek hero Ajax.
Until We Come Home presents dialog from vets that is unflinching and direct.
The film carries its message in a way that is riveting. Dedicated to NVF Founder Shad Meshad for his 45 years of service to vets, the film is visually arresting and powerful.
Scott McCullough and Wendy Buhler use their creativity and dedication as artists and veteran activists to help make it possible for us to do what we do. We are so grateful to them, to Martin Sheen and to the other veterans who participated. Make sure you see this film.
