“Lorna is an embodiment of what I tell my journalism students: that real reporting doesn’t mean checking your heart at the door. She is an engaging, warm, and forthright speaker. She and filmmaker Trish Dalton held a riveting Q&A at a screening in Woodstock, NY. This film, and these women, will inspire you and challenge your perspective on the Iraq War”.
– Lisa A. Phillips, Author and Professor at SUNY, New Paltz and former reporter for NPR
“Astounding to view the whole duration of the war through one person’s eyes… this film can encourage future students to probe deeper into the before and after of the Iraq war so that this important time in U.S. history is not forgotten.”
– Vijai Singh, reporter at NY Times, and MS Global Affairs NYU, PHD International Relations Rutgers
“Bordering on Treason looked at a very difficult time is American history. The content surrounding Lorna Tychostup’s work in Iraq was not only powerful but inspiring. I hope someday I have the passion and drive to go after something of that caliber. On a personal note, Lorna Tychostup has made me want to peruse photojournalism in my own life.”
– Olivia Wallace, Student at SUNY New Paltz
“Your screening was invaluable last night. I’m really happy to have attended, seeing the documentary put things in perspective for all of us who attended. As time progresses, I have a hunch that your film is definitely going to continue to grow with future generations who were not born during that time of global chaos/ the start of it all.”
