Andrew Hida’s second part to Readen’s Story from his work on traumatic brain injury titled “Slow Healing”
Thank you so much for everyone’s excitement and support for the Slow Healing
project, and thank you to everyone who was able to watch Part 1 last week.
Today I just wanted to announce the release of Part 2 to Readen’s story.
Readen Clavier is a survivor of the war in Iraq. Since 2005 he has been
living with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). As a continuation to his story,
this chapter follows him through the workplace, the operating room, and the
future that stands before him. Through his narrative he speaks of the
adaptation and determination to overcome his handicaps, as well as the
relationships and support from his community that have helped carry Readen
to where he is today.
Slow Healing is a multi-chaptered multimedia documentary exploring the
effects of TBI on a growing population of traumatically brain-injured
soldiers returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. These quiet
stories of survival provide the basis for an understanding of this
invisible, life-altering wound. Please follow the links below to watch Part
2, the final chapter to Readen’s story:
