Jon Jackson attempted to take his life, returning home after six tours overseas and “losing his sense of purpose of what it means to be a warrior”. But Jon took a stand and developed Comfort Farms, a sustainable therapy farm set up to serve the community and his fellow Veterans, many of which suffer from the same lack of purpose. Through a variety of narratives we hear the perspectives of various characters and combat Veterans, including a Veteran turned therapist and another who fought in the Philippines during WW2, a butcher and chef who’s a proponent of humane animal slaughter, and the perspective of farm founder Jon Jackson whose focus is on a unique form of agro-cognitive behavioral therapy and challenging culture to respect what they eat. These narratives come together and form an interesting juxtaposition that bring up a number of interesting questions, not just about Veterans’ issues per se, but about the human condition, the nature of sacrifice, love, life, death and triumph. Won the Grand Jury prize for Best Documentary Feature at Film Invasion Los Angeles 2020.
