Comfort Farms

202076 minutes
Documentary

Jon Jackson attempted to take his life, returning home after six tours overseas and "losing his sense of purpose, what it means to be a warrior." But Jon took a stand and founded Comfort Farms, a sustainable farm set up to serve the community and heal his fellow Veterans. We hear the perspectives of a wide range of characters including farmers, combat Veterans, a Veteran turned therapist and another who fought in the Philippines during WW2, a butcher and chef who's a proponent of humane animal slaughter, and Jackson who focuses on a unique form of Agro-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and challenges culture to respect what they eat. The juxtaposition of these narratives brings up a number of interesting questions, not just about Veterans' issues per se, but about the human condition and the nature of sacrifice, love, life, death, and triumph. Winner of the Grand Jury prize for Best Documentary Feature at Film Invasion Los Angeles 2020.
