Vietnam: Lost Films
No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. Richard Nixon.
This is a story that is in danger of being lost to history. It's a story of the men who came home from the Vietnam War and tried to forget - men who represent a second silent generation. Although the U.S. lost the war, what is overlooked today is that the men who fought in Vietnam won every battle. It's time now, using the same experiential approach to storytelling and visuals that were used in WWII in HD, to give these veterans a voice. It's time to allow them to tell their stories and relive their courage, their fears, and their struggles. This six-hour miniseries will cover the time period from the initial massive troop build-up in 1965 to the fall of Saigon in 1975. The sound design, using popular music and covers of rock music from that era, will be integral to evoking the time period and the experience.
