RIDING MY WAY BACK (2014)
The Park Theatre and Touchstone Farm are pleased to announce our screening of RIDING MY WAY BACK. The new award winning, short documentary about the powerful healing of therapeutic riding for a veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury will be screened at the Jaffrey Woman’s Club, 33 Main Street in Jaffrey on Saturday, January 10th at a reception from 4 to 6 pm. Admission is free and veterans of all military conflicts and their families are encouraged to attend. The public is also invited and refreshments will be served.
RIDING MY WAY BACK, a short documentary, chronicles one soldier’s journey back from the brink of suicide. In 2010, Staff Sergeant Aaron Heliker returned from multiple deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). At his most desperate and isolated, on 42 medications and suicidal, Aaron is introduced to the unlikeliest of saviors: a horse named Fred. Through caring for Fred, Aaron begins the difficult process of reconnecting to the world around him and healing the invisible wounds of war that nearly defeated him.
Producers and directors, Oscar Nominee Robin Fryday, Peter Rosenbaum and Richie Goldman have launched an ambitious program; THE RIDING MY WAY BACK FILM PROJECT. Engaging PATH Intl.
