After Fire


USA, Social Issue Documentary, 2016
90 min, Color

Set in the military outpost of San Antonio, Texas, AFTER FIRE highlights the challenges faced by the fastest-growing group of American veterans: women, who now account for one in five new recruits to the U.S. Armed Forces. Demonstrating courage during their military service and resilience in its aftermath, Brittany Huckabee’s subjects candidly confront the fallout of their experiences in their personal lives as they adjust to the civilian world. The film throws a spotlight on the human toll of rape in the military, combat injuries and bureaucratic dysfunction, telling a universal story about strength in the aftermath of trauma.
