In this moving documentary, director Peter Daulton travels with the exhibit "Eyes Wide Open" to several cities and joins military families as they visit the boots of their children lost in the war.
Focused on the human cost of the Iraq War, the touring "Eyes Wide Open" exhibit features a pair of empty army boots for each U.S. casualty and a collection of civilian shoes to represent a portion of the Iraqi civilians killed in the conflict.
The "Eyes Wide Open" exhibition is a multimedia, multisensory journey through words, images, and sounds of the Iraq War. In this critical time, Eyes Wide Open speaks directly to our hearts and minds, shattering the claim that the war has made America safer and challenging us to confront our fears and let our dreams, not our nightmares, shape our collective future.
Join Gold Star families in Eyes Wide Open as they make the emotional journey to visit the boots of their lost children.
