December 17, 2006
A documentary on the war in Vietnam entitled ‘Chat Doc Da Cam’ (Agent Orange) produced by Japanese Masako Sakata is now on screen at the 28th Latin America New Film International Film Festival in La Habana, Cuba.
The film recalls events occurring in 1970s of the last century when Vietnam was in fierce war. During the war, the US sprayed defoliation which destroyed the environment and harmed Vietnamese people.
The film’s director Masako Sakata herself is a victim of the Agent Orange. Her husband, an American veteran who joined the Vietnam war, passed away a couple of years ago due to the aftermath of the Agent Orange.
The film also touches upon the misery of Vietnamese families whose members are in disease or deformed due to the Agent Orange.
