My father's Vietnam, written, produced and directed by Soren Sorenson

A personal documentary about a public subject, "My Father's Vietnam" personifies the connections made and unmade by the Vietnam War. Featuring never-before-seen photographs and 8mm footage of the era, "My Father's Vietnam" is the story of three soldiers, only one of whom returned home alive. Interviews with the filmmaker's Vietnam veteran father and the friends and family members of the two men with whom he served — both of whom who were killed there — give voice to individuals who continue to carry silent, psychological burdens of a war that ended over 40 years ago. "My Father's Vietnam" carries with it the potential to encourage audiences to broach the subjects of service and sacrifice with the veterans in their lives
