About the Production:
"Weekend Warrior is a project I've been harvesting since my friend joined
the Canadian Army Reserves in 2004. Although he is a trained soldier,
he hasn't ventured overseas to fight and possibly never will. In the
Canadian Reserves, it is your choice to fight, and so for him, the army
has become a fun, decent-paying job on the weekends, that helps him pay
for university. I was interested in exploring this concept: what
function does the army serve if not to fight wars? More specifically,
why does one enlist in the army with no intention of fighting?" Lyndon Casey
