Most of us are familiar with Civil War and World War II reenactments. These wars were long enough ago that they evoke a certain nostalgia and even romance. But what would compel someone to reenact a more recent, morally ambiguous and unpopular war? What would compel someone to reenact Vietnam?
Co-Directors: Mike Attie & Meghan O'Hara
Director of Photography: Mike Attie
About the Production:
"As children growing up in the 70/80s, we felt the impact of the Vietnam War all around us. We had relatives who enlisted to go to Vietnam, as well as family who actively protested against the war. As adults, we have experienced a decade of war that has had little direct impact on our lives and the impact of which is still unknown."
"For us, IN COUNTRY is a meditation on the impact of war across generations and how the drums of war continue to draw men to battle despite the devastating consequences." -- Mike Attie
