Ashland, OR (03/20/2019) – Massif®, a world-leader in flame-resistant apparel for the U.S. Military is excited to announce the release of, A Journey Home, a new Massif Films™ Production.

The film showcases National Industries for the Blind (NIB) through an inside look at four adults from around the country who have lost their sight for a variety of reasons. Trapped in a world of depression and anxiety, they all, in one form or another, struggle to find themselves and regain a sense of self-worth. Potentially facing a life of overwhelming challenges, they all found NIB. The professional training and personal support provided by NIB enabled each of them to find their new niche of contribution to our military men and women and our society as a whole. Their inspiration is undeniable in the film.

"Massif has been an incredible supporter of IFB Solutions and our mission. Every day, we strive to find opportunities for people who are blind or visually impaired through employment, training, and services. This film showcases the lives of our employees who are proud to serve our military by creating quality products that keep them safe while serving our country," said David Horton, President, and CEO, IFB Solutions.

Filmed by Jared Cruce Studio, Massif strives with this and future films, to broaden the company's brand vision, showcase partnerships, and ultimately portray the company's core values, beliefs, and direction.

"Our goal is to share unique stories which coincide with the Massif mission through a visual medium. In A Journey Home, we set out to tell the story of some amazing NIB individuals. The result is an exhilarating film and gripping story of human perseverance," said Mike Walters, Marketing Communication Manager at Massif.

Now in its 20th year in business, and building on the success of the short film, The Massif Story, Massif will continue their film efforts in 2019 as they increase their Massif Films library and share more of the fascinating stories that surround, and encompass their brand.
