IN COUNTRY by Mike Attie and Meghan O’Hara (Seattle, WA)
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2 AT 8PM
(80 min)

Deep in the Oregon woods, the heat of a reenacted Vietnam battle sheds light on America’s complicated relationship with war and its veterans.

In Country is a feature documentary that follows 2/5 1st Cav (Reenacted), a “platoon” of hardcore Vietnam War reenactors. Weaving together verité footage of the reenactments with flashbacks to the characters’ real lives and archival footage from the Vietnam War, In Country blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy, past and present to tell a story about men trying to access the past.

The question at the center of In Country is “why?” Why would these men—many of them combat veterans of Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan haunted by their own experiences on the frontline—try to recreate a war that so many have tried to forget?

In Country had its world premiere at the 2014 Full Frame Film Festival.
