Adventure Not War
This spring Stept Studios had the privilege of joining Stacy Bare, Robin Brown, and Matthew Griffin, three U.S. Army Captains on a heartfelt journey back to where they served in Iraq.
'Adventure Not War' takes us into mountains of Iraq revealing a seldom seen, beautiful underbelly in a place scarred with devastation. With this film we take a new approach to war, inviting veterans to rewrite their histories in places where they served and heal wounds deeper than flesh and bone. We hope this film will help promote peace and a universal understanding that beauty can replace hatred if we strive for adventure, not war.
