Compelling, moving documentary like you've never seen. This stunning, empathetic account of the impact of the Vietnam Wall on veterans of the war covers a topic never attempted. For years, the Wall has stood as a memorial, a touchstone for those who served in many capacities. But it also reopens old wounds, sparking emotions of pride and sorrow. The Wall's Embrace explores the soldiers, medical staff, and others who served, trying to understand the catharsis they experienced by the Wall's enduring presence. This is not a war story -- this is humanity. Feel free to share this film with anyone who's been touched by war. They'll surely understand.
The story of The Wall and its major role in shifting our nation’s attitude towards the vets is brilliantly pieced together from the personal accounts of some truly awe-inspiring individuals. “The Wall’s Embrace” gave me a completely new understanding of this special memorial. I’ll never look at it the same way, and I believe than anyone who has seen this documentary would agree that they too have a vastly different appreciation for The Wall.
