Best Feature Documentary, 2012
On the Bridge (USA, 96 min)
Directed by Olivier Morel
Produced by Paul Rozenberg
Wendy, born Mexican, sent to the hell of Iraq at 19; Jason lives with his medication, his refuge in songs; the angel-faced Ryan’s rage; Lisa, a Chicago police officer, was deployed at Abu Ghraib; David… eight combat tours; Vinny, torn between loyalty and disgust.
This film is haunted: by the figure of an “unknown soldier,” Jeff, who incarnates the 23 veterans who commit suicide every day in America.
