Event Details

Screening of the documentary Return to Dak To,  a film by Christopher Upham.

Five army veterans journey back to contemporary Vietnam, intending to put their war experiences to rest.

Disturbed by the new American wars, writer and Vietnam veteran Christopher Upham reconnects with his old battalion, the 299th Engineers. Upham's long lost comrades tell him an unsettling truth - they thought that he was dead - killed in the 1969 Dak To siege in Vietnam's Central Highlands. Upham and four Engineer comrades confront ghosts, former enemies and the legacies of the Vietnam War. Questions raised by Return to Dak To - about the role of soldiers and the long term personal effects of war - take on a heightened poignancy in this current climate.

See the film and stay for conversation afterward.  Registration is appreciated.
