Dear America: Letters Home From Vietnam1987 – 85 min.

Director: Bill Couturié
Synopsis:All the confusion, pain, despair, and even hope of the men and women who served in Vietnam is captured in “Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam.” Read by dozens of actors such as Harvey Keitel, Matt Dillon, and Kathleen Turner, these letters show a more human story of the war than we see in most media outlets and reveal real people in real situations trying to explain or understand. The footage, some newsreel, some shot by the servicemen and servicewomen, reveals a tension between the soldiers’ actual experiences and the presentation their loved ones received from television.
