ANOTHER BROTHER is a moving biographical mosaic of one ordinary yet extraordinary man, Clarence Fitch. An African American veteran of the Vietnam War, Clarence was like many veterans in the hardships he endured – racism, poverty, substance abuse, and HIV/AIDS – yet uncommon in his ability to transform these experiences through a life of political activism. In telling Clarence’s gripping personal story, the film provides a unique window onto the Vietnam War, racism in America, and a host of social problems which have ravaged America for the past three decades. The film is narrated chiefly by Clarence in an audio taped interview by William Short, a fellow Vietnam veteran, before Clarence’s death from AIDS in 1990.
