Aaron Zamora of M.U.S.E. had the great honor of sitting down with Director Rory Kennedy to talk about her new documentary Last Days in Vietnam.
Award winning documentary filmmaker Rory Kennedyâ€™s newest film, Last Days in Vietnam, focuses on the final days of the American presence before the fall of South Vietnam. Written by Mark Bailey & Keven McAlester, Last Days in Vietnam exposes a sobering reality mixed with heroism and inspiration.
Produced and directed by Kennedy, the film explores the last tumultuous years of the American presence in Vietnam. From the Paris peace accords to President Nixonâ€™s resignation followed by President Fordâ€™s wavering commitment, the film culminates with an exploration into the final 24 hours in Saigon before the last 6,000 Americanâ€™s fled the country as it fell to the North Vietnamese.
Last Days in Vietnam will be screening in the Los Angeles area starting today, September 19 at the Nuart Theater in Los Angeles until September 25th and the University 6 in Irvine from September 26th-October 2nd.
