Just Like Me: Vietnam War Stories from All Sides
- Date: Thursday, November 07, 2019
- Time: 7:00 pm
- Location: William G. McGowan Theater
Journey from present to past and back again with Vietnam veteran Ron Osgood in his quest to recover fragmented and buried stories from all sides of the Vietnam War. The stories from veterans and non-combatants look at the ways in which war becomes inscribed into the life histories of ordinary individuals and the attempt to humanize our former enemies. By interweaving American and Vietnamese perspectives, the program promotes cross-cultural connection, empathy, and compassion. (2018; 60 mins.) Following the screening, filmmaker Osgood will be joined by historian Marc Leepson to discuss the film and answer audience questions.
