STAND DOWN SOLDIER

Buy tickets

Stand Down Soldier portrays the return from combat tours in the Mid-East of a female, African-American Sgt. Written, directed and starring Jeryl Prescott-Sales of the “Walking Dead,” it is a penetrating look at the trauma faced by soldiers seeking to re-establish the life, loves and relationships they left behind and a Veterans Affairs system that is failing them.

Yet, it is the trauma inflicted by rape at the hands of a fellow combatant which makes Stand Down Soldier a unique, compelling, must-be-seen film. While much discussion of the role of women-in-combat and the debilitating effects of combat related PTSD has occurred… the war-time reality of rape, especially that of the African-American woman at the hands of a “white cohort” has been ignored. Bombs may burn the body but rape sears the spirit and the soul.

In the end, it is her community, her loved ones and her strength that lead her back home from a place African-American women had left behind generations ago. Kudos to Ms. Prescott-Sales…she has done her “sisters-in-uniform” proud.” – Former KISS-FM radio talk show personality Sanford Moore aka “the cutman”.
Directed by Jeryl Prescott Sale, 2015, USA, 82mins, Drama, English
