Walk With Frank

Friday, May 19, 2023

Walk With Frank is a film about self-discovery, mental health, and a truly honest look at how PTSD and mental health impact our society. Frank's journey started when he was ambushed and critically wounded in the jungles of Vietnam, setting him down a dark spiral of drug and alcohol abuse, prison, and family discord. Since then, he has been trying to understand his own issues while working to change the cultural conversation surrounding mental health and post-trauma. Once he learned to embrace his past and not run from it, Frank was able to finally take his first steps toward healing. Frank’s honest and open approach creates a space for people to open up and share their personal stories in an intimate way. On his walk, Frank presents his Art of War exhibit to students and other survivors of PTSD and talks about how art therapy helped him out of his darkest times. He also makes amends with the people he has alienated in his past including his brother, his children, and his best friend and combat buddy Peter.
