Vietnam as an American Story: Hollywood's War Narratives

September 2, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm | Flaherty Community Room (204 Basile)

This event begins the Vietnam Series.

From "Ballad of the Green Berets" to "Full Metal Jacket" and movies like "The Deer Hunter," "Forest Gump," "Hair" and even the Rambo series, Hollywood has reflected and added to our culture's Vietnam stories. As a kickoff to the fall series, MMU professors Joy Ochs and Joe Sheller speak on just a few examples of the Vietnam stories we tell in movies.
