Description

Just Like Me: Vietnam War Stories from All Sides is a journey from present to past and back again that follows Vietnam veteran Ron Osgood in his quest to recover fragmented and buried stories from all sides of the Vietnam War/American War, revealing multiple perspectives that are thematically interconnected. The stories from veterans and non-combatants look at the ways in which war becomes inscribed into the life histories of ordinary individuals and the attempt to humanize our former enemies. By interweaving American and Vietnamese perspectives, the program promotes cross-cultural connection, empathy and compassion.

The screening of this documentary will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.

Ron Osgood is Professor Emeritus in the Media School at Indiana University, a documentary filmmaker, and a Vietnam War veteran.  He taught courses in video design and production and currently teaches documentary film courses for the Indiana University Honors College.

Doors open at 6:30pm to this free and unticketed event. Just Like Me: Vietnam War Stories from All Sides was released in 2017 and has a runtime of 60 minutes. The film will be followed by a Q&A.

In addition to this screening, the BCT honors Vietnam veterans with the dedication of a front-row seat on Friday, March 29, 11:30 am.
