Based on the 1991 American Book Award winner of the same name, Vietnam War veteran Charley Trujillo and producer Sonya Rhee's Soldados: Chicanos in Vietnam is the first documentary to recount the harrowing experience of a generation of Mexican-American boys who fought in Vietnam.

Raised in the San Joaquin Valley of California, they took their first journey away from their rural hometown was to the war-torn rice paddies of Vietnam. Profoundly changed by the experience, the soldados returned with a new conception of themselves and their country – and of the particular challenges facing them as Chicanos. Was previously aired on PBS and was awarded A Diverse Voices Project Selection.

Author and filmmaker Charley Trujillo will be presenting and taking questions after the movie.
