UCI Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing and
the Center for Medical Humanities presents:
VISIONS OF WARRIORS
On Tuesday, May 28, the Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing and the Center for Medical Humanities will screen an important film that documents four U.S. military veterans, from the Vietnam War era to the Iraq War, who participate in a groundbreaking Veteran Photo Recovery Project. Visions of Warriors enters the minds of the four veterans and their use of the innovative photography therapy to treat their moral injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, military sexual trauma, and other mental illnesses. The documentary also profiles the Veteran Photo Recovery Project team, including founder Susan Quaglietti who is a nurse practitioner. Because the veterans use photography therapy to treat their mental illness, the cinematography is inspired by iconic photo essays in Life Magazine and National Geographic that intimately capture people’s lives. Ultimately, Visions of Warriors is a universal story about the strength of the human spirit.
