My Life Story: words I didn’t know
My Life Story: wordsididn’tknow is a short stop-motion video that compares my own deployment to Iraq to my grandfather’s time in the service during WWII.
The film briefly introduces the farm I grew up on in North Dakota. And describes how after my grandfather would mow the lawn, he would drink ice tea and take off his shirt relieving his shrapnel wounds from fighting in the South Pacific.
The film is about my understanding of the war as a child and an adult.
