Ground Truth: After The Killing Ends, The

“Bomb the village, Kill the people, Throw some napalm in a square, Do it on a Sunday morning, Kill them on their way to prayer, Ring the bell inside the schoolhouse, Watch those kiddies gather around, Lock and load with your 240, Mow them little motherfuckers down.” –U.S. Army Chant

Hailed as “powerful” and “quietly unflinching,” Patricia Foulkrod’s searing documentary feature includes exclusive footage that will stir audiences. The filmmaker’s subjects are patriotic young Americans – ordinary men and women who heeded the call for military service in Iraq – as they experience recruitment and training, combat, homecoming, and the struggle to reintegrate with families and communities. The terrible conflict in Iraq, depicted with ferocious honesty in the film, is a prelude for the even more challenging battles fought by the soldiers returning home – with personal demons, an uncomprehending public, and an indifferent government. As these battles take shape, each soldier becomes a new kind of hero, bearing witness and giving support to other veterans, and learning to fearlessly wield the most powerful weapon of all – the truth.
