Wendy Barranco, protagonist of Walking Wounded, featured in Yann Arthus Bertrand’s new film (to be released in September).

In 2008 I met a powerful young woman, an Iraq War veteran named Wendy Barranco. Her personal insight about the war, about the US, about Iraq… her humanity touched me deeply. She was featured in my film “On the Bridge” that I completed in 2011, and will be featured in “Walking Wounded” (upcoming, NBM publishing, October 2015). A few month ago, I was contacted by Yann Arthus Bertrand’s team. Arthus Bertrand wanted Wendy to be interviewed for his new film “Human.” They interviewed over 2000 people around the world. Today, Wendy’s picture was on France’s evening news while Arthus Bertrand was being interviewed about “Human.” Obviously, Wendy’s story is a highly compelling one.
