Tomas Update

Tomas Update, originally uploaded by
Its been several years since we finished "Body of War". Tomas Young who the film follows, looks like this today. He may be smiling but his message is dark. Since the movie, an aneurysm (related to his injury) has caused partial paralysis in his hands and his speech is now garbled. Donahue wanted to show that the costs of war are even greater than what the film shows. This epilogue will not be on the DVD. That was cost-prohibitive since the DVD is already out. This will show at future film festivals during the Q&A and hopefully on youtube too.
