About the documentary, Battlefield of the Mind
Director/Photographer Fran Strine directed and produced his debut non-music documentary entitled Battlefield of the Mind. The project is a tribute to veterans who give everything to defend their country and a lament on the lack of care for them upon their return home.
The idea for the project was put together by Strine and a collection of his illustrious, longtime collaborators. Co-Producing the film is the front man of multi-platinum rockers, STAIND, Aaron Lewis. Lewis is also a rising solo Country music star, with his first album in the genre attaining gold-selling status. Also notable is the film’s narrator, legendary MEGADETH bassist, David Ellefson.
Battlefield of the Mind is a full-length documentary that tells the raw and tragic details of what life is like as an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran today. Many veterans suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and among them are those whose lives have fallen apart and have become homeless as a result. Severe PTSD leaves these returning heroes on a downward spiral into their own personal hell.
On any given night not far from your front door there are upwards of 75,000 veterans trying to survive the brutal conditions of the streets. The VA has seen their backlog of disability claims increase to 864,000 with the majority suffering from PTSD. “Battlefield of the Mind” explores how and why this can happen in one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
