Realscreen is partnering with filmmaker and executive producer Chuck Braverman and his Westdoc Online video series to bring his interviews with acclaimed documentarians and non-fiction content industry figures to its readership.
In the latest episode, Braverman talks with filmmakers and New York Times journalists Catrin Einhorn and Leslye Davis about their feature doc, Father Solider Son, now streaming on Netflix. The film, over a span of 10 years, follows United States Army sergeant Brian Eisch and family, and depicts how, as a single father, his deployment during the war in Afghanistan has impacted him and his two sons, Isaac and Joey.
Braverman and the filmmakers discuss how the story unfolded over the span of making the film, how the project originally began as a New York Times story, and how the film serves both as a study of masculinity and the complexities of committing to a life in the military.
