WINTER SOLDIER is a stunning documentary made by the Winterfilm Collective of an incident recounting the horrors of a particular incident that occurred during the Vietnam War.
In 1971, one month after the notorious My Lai massacre, 100 Vietnam veterans gathered in a Detroit hotel conference room to testify to the horrors and crimes they had witnessed and committed during combat.
Although not covered in the news at the time, the meeting was recorded by an anonymous filmmaking collective and turned into an angry, haunted and essential documentary-cum-confessional that went virtually unseen for more than 30 years. As with the classic SHOAH, this vital time capsule presents the horrors of war unadorned.
