"Winter Soldier" (Vietnam)
"Winter Soldier (Vietnam)"
(Winterfilm Collective, 1972, 96 min.)
For three days in the winter of 1971, 30 Vietnam veterans testified on war crimes in Detroit, Michigan as a part of the "Winter Soldier Investigation" conducted by Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). A call went out from VVAW to veterans all over the country saying, in effect, 'everyone is talking about the war that you know from the inside. If you want to have anything to say about it, come to Detroit and tell it like you saw it.' At the investigation, over 125 veterans representing every major combat unit to see action in Vietnam, gave eye-witness testimony to war crimes and atrocities they either participated in or witnessed. The purpose of the investigation was to bring to light the nature of American military policy in Vietnam. This film follows the events and several of the veterans.

-Followed by a discussion with Joe Urgo  Organizer, Winter Soldier 1970 - 1972. Other speakers TBA

WINTER SOLDIERS: Vietnam to Iraq and Afghanistan (January 20th - 27th & 30th at the Maysles Cinema). With Winter Soldiers: Iraq and Afghanistan, the veteran and active duty led inquiry of 2008 and its inspiration - the original Winter Soldier Investigation of 1971 (and the film by the same name) - as bookends, this series explores the soldier's point of view in these conflicts as well as their role in the genesis of any critique of these wars.

Co-sponsored by National Black Programming Consortium, The Brecht Forum, The International Trauma Studies Program and Red Channels.
