 A Conversation with Josh Hisle & Daniel Collins
The directors of the stunning documentary From War to Wisdom discuss their film, which follows an elite group of Marines who have survived the war in Iraq and returned to civilian life only to find a new set of challenges. Their next mission: find ways to serve their fellow veterans.

The discussion is interspersed with movie clips, original live music performed by director Cpl. Josh Hisle (USMC, Ret.), and opportunities for questions and interaction.

Cpl. Josh Hisle (USMC, Ret.) is a two-tour combat veteran of the Iraq War, and a renowned independent musician. When the planes hit the towers on that terrible day, 19-year-old Josh Hisle enlisted in the infantry in the United States Marine Corps. Josh Hisle served in the infantry with FOX Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, the most decorated battalion in the history of the Marine Corps. They stormed Baghdad, toppled Saddam Hussein, and spent years going from door to bloody door to fight the insurgency in Ramadi.

Daniel R. Collins is an award-winning documentary editor, producer and director. His goal is to create unique documentary films that examine the untold stories of American subcultures. His work as an editor and producer has won many awards, including a regional EMMY Award in 2003 for Outstanding Cultural Documentary.
