POV Season 12
Feature Film | 01/04/2000 | 73 Mins

In this Academy Award nominee, filmmaker Barbara Sonneborn is compelled to make a brave pilgrimage to the remote Vietnamese countryside where her husband died. She explores the meaning of war and loss on a human level and weaves interviews with Vietnamese and American widows into a vivid testament to the chilling legacy of war. These stories are stirring reminders that the battle scars are life-long, but that shared sorrow can inspire healing and reconciliation.
