Aaron Zamora of M.U.S.E. had the great honor of sitting down with Academy Award nominated Director Rory Kennedy to talk about her documentary,Â 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.
