Telling War: “Just Like Me” screening
February 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Ron Osgood, Vietnam War veteran, documentary filmmaker, and Professor Emeritus from the Media School at Indiana University will respond to a screening of his latest film, Just Like Me, at the Magic Lantern.
Just Like Me: Vietnam War Stories from All Sides is a journey from present to past and back again that follows Vietnam veteran Ron Osgood in his quest to recover fragmented and buried stories from all sides of the Vietnam War/American War, revealing multiple perspectives that are thematically interconnected. The stories from veterans and non-combatants look at the ways in which war becomes inscribed into the life histories of ordinary individuals and the attempt to humanize our former enemies. By interweaving American and Vietnamese perspectives, the program promotes cross-cultural connection, empathy and compassion. Recipient, 2018 Regional Emmy for Documentary. Official Selection, The History Film Festival.
