"Friendship Village" is an award-winning documentary about an international group of veterans who are building a village in Vietnam for children with Agent Orange-related disabilities. Built on a former rice paddy near Hanoi, the Friendship Village stands not only as a symbol of peace and reconciliation, but as a testament to the potential for all people to come to terms with the past, heal the wounds of war, and create a better world. Vets from the USA, Vietnam, France, Germany, Japan, Great Britain, and Australia are attempting to mitigate the ongoing effects of Agent Orange, a toxic herbicide sprayed during the Vietnam war. As such, the Vietnam Friendship Village has the potential to change not only the lives of the children who live in it and the people who build it, but all who come to understand its mission.

The film will be followed by an open discussion led by George Johnson of Veterans for Peace.
