In THE LAST GHOST OF WAR, we meet victims who are plaintiffs in a class action suit against 32 U.S. chemical companies. These Vietnamese victims are seeking compensation and justice. The question is were these dioxin-laden herbicides chemical weapons? And if so, who should be held accountable in the wake of what was arguably the largest chemical warfare operation in history?
Calavera Highway premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2008 at 10 p.m. on PBS, part of the 21st season of P.O.V. Calavera Highway is a sweeping drama of the Mexican American migrant experience, as revealed in the passage from one generation to the next. It is the intimate story of seven brothers who took that journey.
A Vietnamese family attempts to resolve its divided past when three brothers, one capitalist, one communist, one anti-war, who fought against each other in the Vietnam War meet again after decades and confront their differences. Meanwhile, two first-generation Vietnamese American sisters try to reconcile a difficult past that altered the course of their lives.
