Produced by Danny Glover, who stars as Mark Walker, The Drummer is a series of interconnected stories that show exactly how war impacts those that fight in it.
Walker is a Vietnam war vet and advocate for those with PTSD who works in a coffee shop called The Drummer, a place where soldiers can freely discuss their feelings with a man who has lived the same life they have.
Glover said of the film, “My brother was a Vietnam vet, given to the recent announcement that there are more veterans suicide than soldiers killed in Iraq makes the film The Drummer more timely than ever.”
For only making two movies, director and co-writer (with Jessica Gohlke) Eric Werthman turns in a movie that’s rich with drama and reaches to tell the viewer just how rough life is for those that have to shut off living in hell.
The Drummer is now streaming.
