Lighter than Orange is a brand new film. Our screening a world premiere, so very few people have had a chance to see it yet. It feels foreign relative to the others. German made and totally focused on Vietnam and Vietnamese veterans and their families. It makes a strong case for recognizing the link between exposure to Agent Orange and reproductive problems from miscarriage to monster babies to children who survive with debilitating mental and/or physical state requiring constant care. This is a beautiful film, an art film really though some might think it moves too slowly. But so much is reflected in the aging veterans’ faces, in their eyes. Their stories are heartbreaking. They are survivors, but what a cost. (The film also contains a surprise appearance by none other than Suel Jones, sharing his knowledge about the issue from a hilltop overlooking Danang.)
