A short narrative film on history and the Vietnam War
(To see the film, click on the title, above, or on the photo from the video)
In 2008, Congress created a 13-year, $5-million-per-year propaganda project to clean up the image of the Vietnam War. It’s called The Vietnam War Commemoration Project
and it focuses on issues of individual honor and bravery. It avoids the controversial historical and moral issues of the war.
In response, a number of Vietnam veterans have created The Vietnam War Commemoration CORRECTION Project as a provocation to open discussion as to what the Vietnam War means to Americans. Was the war even necessary? In 1945 did the US, in fact, betray its World War Two Vietnamese ally — the Vietminh under Ho Chi Minh — in order to support a continuation of French Colonialism in Vietnam? Many Americans feel the Vietnam War was a tragic debacle that still divides Americans. A Pentagon “commemoration” of the war comes up way short of what is helpful for the future of America in a changing world. This short film is meant to raise questions about the truth of the Vietnam War.
