Breathe In/Breathe Out2000

Bravely bringing three severely traumatized Vietnam war veterans and their adult children back to Vietnam, the place of their trauma, director Beth B explores rebirth and the reconciliation process. Reflections of their lives before, during and after the war are now challenged with a new understanding of Vietnam, its people and places, once seen and preserved in their memory, as pure horror. It will force them to open up to new possibilities and perhaps even to happiness. Using raw, intense and often revelatory scenes of the journey, captured in a verité style, braiding them with intimate, one-on-one interviews shot in a traditional essayistic format, this documentary takes the Veterans, their families and the viewer, on the healing road to confronting the troubled past. It encourages them to open up to new possibilities and perhaps even to happiness. - Stela Jelincic
