    "Best Documentary of the Year" - National Board of Review

    "This is a film about guts, over there and back here.
    Born on the Fourth of July and Coming Home for a new generation.”
    Sean Penn

    [ ]

    Tomas Young, a 26-year-old veteran, was shot and paralyzed after serving 5 days in Iraq. His story is told in the critically acclaimed antiwar feature documentary Body of War, produced and directed by legendary talk show host Phil Donahue and award-winning filmmaker Ellen Spiro. The film features two original songs by Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam.

    Body of War is an intimate human drama wrapped in a political documentary -- full of angst but also humor and hope. As the paralyzed veteran Tomas deals with his disability, he evolves into a new person, finding his own passionate voice against the war. Body of War also captures the historic debate in the Congress in the fall of 2002 authorizing the war and celebrates those that stood up against the rush to invade.

    Body of War was voted "Best Documentary of the Year" by the National Board of Review, nominated for "Best Documentary" by the Producers Guild of America, and received multiple audience awards at film festivals from Toronto to Palm Springs. It's been acclaimed in the media and by the public. Everyone who has seen the film says that everyone should see it.

    A companion double-CD compilation “Body of War: Songs that Inspired an Iraq War Veteran” is available from Sire Records.
