Buried Above Ground

BURIED ABOVE GROUND goes on a poignant and intimate journey with three people trying to recover from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – former Captain Luis Carlos Montalván, an U.S. Army Iraq War veteran, along with his service dog Tuesday; Erundina, a survivor of domestic violence; and Ashley, an evacuee from Hurricane Katrina. BURIED ABOVE GROUND explores its subjects’ lives over six years, gaining access to their home life, therapy sessions, and communities, as they try to unburden themselves from the crippling lock of their past traumas. The personal battles fought by Luis, Ashley and Erundina illuminate a global health condition that is misunderstood, underreported and often left untreated. The film’s release coincides with the launch of Luis Carlos Montalván latest memoir, Tuesday’s Promise, about life as a national advocate since he got his service dog Tuesday.
