Expected to Attend: Mike Attie & Meghan O'Hara

NYC PREMIERE By now, the idea of Civil War re-enactment is familiar, but the subjects of Mike Attie and Meghan O’Hara’s intriguing film relive the battles of a far more surprising conflict: Vietnam. Drawing a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq War soldiers, actual Vietnam veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, this band of brothers regularly recreates—by choice—a war that a whole generation would rather forget. What lies behind their compulsion to restage an unpopular war: therapy, nostalgia or something else?

Filmmakers are expected to be in person for the Nov. 15th screening.
