Featuring: “Kaziah The Goat Woman” – Embroiled in a war where the US government has forbid us to view our fallen soldiers, one woman, armed with a paintbrush and a herd of pregnant goats, has found a way to make sure these faces are seen and never forgotten. Painting over 600 portraits as gifts for the families, a quirky Kaziah faces death on a daily basis.
Featuring: “If I Should Fall” – A film that defines the tragedy of war through a families loss of an only son. Driven by premonition of death before deployment to Afghanistan. In case he should fall Trooper Marc Diab made a video for his funeral to deliver a message of comfort from beyond the grave. Prophetically Diab died March 8th, 2009 by IED. His video played at his funeral to a sea of tears. This is the story of journey through grief and what it means to lose a son to war. Through telling the story of the loss of one family, ‘If I Should Fall’ tells the story of all families whom have lost a loved one to war.
