Legacy Of A War
1 X 60'
Genre: Factual, History
Country Of Origin: Thailand, Laos
Just over 40 years after the end of the Second Indochina War, Legacy of a War: Air America and Southeast Asia investigates the origins and history of that war, particularly in Laos, while focusing on the personal stories of the men on both sides who took part in it.
Not only does it screen their personal reminiscences, however, it also gives voice to an assessment of the continuing effects of the war all these years later. Drawing upon archival material, personal interviews, and current film footage shot throughout Laos and Thailand, the film gives a context to the war then and how many perceive it now.
