Testimonial

Where Soldiers Come From

Tim Horsburgh

Hello, my name is Dominic Fredneli. I'm an art student at George Washington University. I'm here not as a filmmaker but as one of the subjects of the Emmy Award winning POV film, Where Soldiers Come From. The film follows me and my friends for 4 years from teenagers to soldiers in Afghanistan, to 23 year-old-veterans adjusting to life in our small town. When I came back from Afghanistan I didn't want to admit that I had changed, even though I was having problems reintegrating back to civilian life. About a year after we came back the director showed us the rough cut and after seeing that I realized the amount of change I had gone through. From then on I used the film as a tool to deal with problems of adjustment and the inability to reach out to others. Once the film was screened publicly and broadcast nationally on POV it opened opportunities for me to do art with other veterans including a combat paper project and a mural at the National Veterans Art Museum in Chicago. The film’s momentum eventually bringing me here to DC to pursue an artistic career with a scholarship to George Washington University arts program, formerly the Corcoran School of Art. Not only did the film help me, I saw it helped other veterans as well. I have received and continued to receive countless emails and Facebook messages on how the film has made it easier for veterans and their loved ones to understand the effects that war has on soldiers and the difficulties they have adjusting to normal life. By programming these types of personal films, POV has not only had an effect on me and everyone involved with the film. But it has also helped countless others.
