Striking a Chord: Instruments of Healing is a 30-minute documentary by Susan Rockefeller, offering civilians insight into the trauma of war and how veterans with PTSD find the courage to heal and rebuild their lives through music, arts and alternative therapies.

“Music reaches the depths of our being – and when our connection to self has been damaged by trauma and loss – music can be a powerful tool to revive us. This film shows how well music, especially live performances, provides a vital connection to self and others and through that connection a chance to recover and heal.”
