"High Ground" is a moving documentary that is both the film it presents itself to be and something more.
Brown ... translates a collage of experiences - some desperate, some hopeful, all tragic - into a first-person commentary on the malign reverberations of war.
Brown takes advantage of the opportunity to present a broad array of feelings, less on the nature of these conflicts in particular and more on the mindset of the soldier in war - and the difficulties faced when no longer in the midst of the conflict.

Moving account of 11 disabled veterans on an expedition to climb Mount Lobuche in the Himalayas.
PTSD documentary provides a poignant portrait of wounded Irag and Afghan War vets as they scale Himalayan mountain.
