In Theatres: IN COUNTRY

IN COUNTRYComing to theatres this Friday, April 10: IN COUNTRY

Mike Attie and Meghan O’Hara’s profile of an unlikely pastime debuted at Full Frame last year. It went on to screen at DOC NYC, Hot Docs, CPH:DOX, and Camden, among other events.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program:
By now, the idea of Civil War re-enactment is familiar, but the subjects of Mike Attie and Meghan O’Hara’s intriguing film relive the battles of a far more surprising conflict: Vietnam. Drawing a mix of combat enthusiasts, Iraq War soldiers, actual Vietnam veterans, and even a former South Vietnamese Army officer, this band of brothers regularly recreates – by choice – a war that a whole generation would rather forget. What lies behind their compulsion to restage an unpopular war: therapy, nostalgia or something else?
