A documentary film
Bordering On Treason tells the amazing story of Lorna Tychostup, a single mother and photojournalist who travels to Iraq continuously for nine years to put a human face on a horrific global tragedy. Visiting military units and Iraqi families beyond the green zone, she evolves from naïve civilian to established journalist. Through Lorna’s personal journey, Bordering On Treason explores the complexities of this war and the possibility of hope.
The film premiered at DOC NYC 2013, New York’s premiere documentary film festival, and was awarded ‘Best Short Documentary 2013’ at the Big Apple Film Festival. BORDERING ON TREASON captures America’s story facing down the Iraq War and bridges the emotional and political disconnect that Americans have experienced and expressed in relation to Iraq. On a personal level it is about the fortitude of spirit and believing in oneself against all odds!
