“Powerful. BURIED ABOVE GROUND will contribute to reshaping the way our society thinks about mental health issues. It will help move viewers and help dispel the myths and misconceptions about PTSD.”
– ROSALYNN CARTER, Former First Lady, The Carter Center
What would you do if the worst thing that ever happened to you felt like it kept happening? BURIED ABOVE GROUND explores this question through the eyes of three post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) survivors.
BURIED ABOVE GROUND goes on an inspirational journey with three people trying to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – Luis, an Iraq War veteran, along with his service dog Tuesday; Erundina, a survivor of domestic violence; and Ashley, an evacuee from Hurricane Katrina. BURIED ABOVE GROUND explores its subjects’ lives over six years, gaining access to their home life, therapy sessions, and communities as they try to unburden themselves from the crippling lock of their past traumas. The personal battles fought by Luis, Ashley and Erundina illuminate a global health condition that is misunderstood, underreported and often left untreated.
