This film captures the legacy of Latino veterans and their families during the Vietnam War, and examines the Latino experience during a war that placed its heaviest burden on working-class youth and profoundly affected Latino communities in South Central Texas.
Veterans and their families are especially encouraged to attend the free screening. Filmmaker Mylène Moreno of Souvenir Pictures frames the documentary, filmed in locations throughout the Southwest and Vietnam, with the memoirs of two siblings, Everett and Delia Alvarez. Moreno will be in attendance and will be a part of the post-screening discussion.
