The film screening “Hunting in Wartime”, a documentary film by Samantha Farinella will open in Hanoi on Thursday.
“Hunting in Wartime” profiles the extraordinary stories of Tlingit Vietnam (American) War veterans from the village of Hoonah, Alaska USA.
The veterans talk about surviving trauma, relating to Vietnamese civilians, readjusting to civilian life, and serving a government that systematically oppresses its native people.
“Hunting In Wartime” has the long-range perspective of how a soldier’s life was affected long after the war ended, giving us a glimpse into what present-day soldiers may confront now and in the future. Their stories give an important human face to the combat soldier and show the lasting effects of war on inpiduals, families and communities.
The film portrays a stark reality of the human cost of war./.
