Film subjects in person Thu Apr 30 | This probing documentary goes deep into the Oregon woods, where a unique band of brothers, many of them veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, gather together to recreate a war that a whole generation would rather forget: Vietnam.
To many of us, the idea of Civil War re-enactment is a familiar concept. But the men of Delta 2/5(R) recreate the battles of a far more charged conflict: The Vietnam War. For one weekend a year, the woods of Oregon transform as a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, revive — by choice — a war that a whole generation would much rather forget. Disquieting and provocative, In Country blurs fantasy with trauma, deftly tugging at the imposing question: what compels these men to don the vintage uniforms and meticulously bring this controversial war back to life?
