ADVENTURE NOT WAR

La scorsa primavera Max Lowe ha avuto il privilegio di unirsi a Stacy Bare, Robin Brown e Matthew Griffin per un viaggio di ritorno in quei luoghi dove i tre militari dell’U.S. Army hanno prestato servizio. Stept Studios ci porta tra le montagne dell’Iraq, rivelando il paese da un punto di vista totalmente inconsueto. Un film che adotta un nuovo approccio alle tematiche di guerra, invitando i veterani a riscrivere le proprie storie per curare le ferite interiori. Un messaggio di pace e comprensione universale, affinché la bellezza possa sostituire l’odio. Siamo per l’avventura, non per la guerra.

“In March of 2017, just shy of my tenth anniversary of leaving Iraq in May of 2007, I partnered with fellow veterans Matthew Griffin and Robin Brown. We put up the first known ski ascent and descent from the top of of Mt. Halgurd, the highest mountain in the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq in the Zagros Mountain Range. The non-profit partner for this mission was TentEd. TentEd was started by fellow Veterans Zack Bazzi, Pat Hu, and Scott Quilty and works to support educational needs determined by the refugee community in Iraqi Kurdistan.” – Stacy Bare

This spring Stept Studios had the privilege of joining Stacy Bare, Robin Brown, and Matthew Griffin, three U.S. Army Captains on a heartfelt journey back to where they served in Iraq.

“Adventure Not War” takes us into mountains of Iraq revealing a seldom seen, beautiful underbelly in a place scarred with devastation. With this film we take a new approach to war, inviting veterans to rewrite their histories in places where they served and heal wounds deeper than flesh and bone. We hope this film will help promote peace and a universal understanding that beauty can replace hatred if we strive for adventure, not war.
