Private Project


Award winning director and feature documentary film - Carol Lombard Clark is on a quest to address and bring help to war veterans' families suffering from PTSD. Through her own story, that of others she interviews, and her travels around the world, she unravels the slow destructive effect of not bringing solutions to the physical and psychological effects that war has on human beings. She uses the camera, words and music, to bring to light the fact that families and loved ones surrounding those who have gone to war, ultimately also suffer from deeply rooted physical and emotional issues. Carol addresses these issues through powerful storytelling and her personal journey.

Director Biography - Carol Lombard Clark

Hello my name is Carol and I made the movie CAROLINE’S DREAM to help people of this world to begin and continue to heal from the effects of war. I come from a family generationally that have been directly affected by war as many of us in the world are today.

My Maternal Grandfather was in WW1, died at age 33; My Father was in WW2 and suffered from the effects of P.T.S.D and my boyfriend was killed in Vietnam when he was 18 and I was 17 and a senior in high school. So my whole lifetime I have felt the effects of war and the losses it can bring in many areas of family and friends lives. This left us with the effects of PTSD which was not treated properly in our family and I know there are many other families that are suffering from these effects as well. I know this because in creating this film, I got to speak with many of them throughout this world.
