Agent Orange documentary screened in France

In Uncategorized on November 25, 2008 at 3:36 pm

Paris (VNA) – A documentary focusing on the use of Agent Orange/dioxin in Vietnam has been screened as part of an international film festival in Paris, France.

The documentary is an entry in the 26 th international environmental film festival, currently taking place in Paris.

The film, produced by Sakata Masako and Bill Megalos and entitled “Agent Orange: personal requiem” is based on the experiences of Japanese director Masako’s husband Greg Davis, who was an American war veteran and journalist who died four years ago of liver cancer – a consequence of exposure to Agent Orange while serving in the war in Vietnam.

Masako visited Vietnam and met with victims of the killer chemical substance. She witnessed the negative impacts of Agent Orange/dioxin on people’s health as well as the long-term effects of the toxic chemical, which are still evident more than 30 years after the end of the war.

According to the director, the film expresses the international community’s condemnation of the US administration’s attitude and the irresponsibility of companies involved in the production and supply of the toxic chemical.

Throughout the film, the director emphasises the courage shown by the Agent Orange victims and their families in spite of the difficulties they face, thanks to their will, and the love and sharing that surrounds them.

The 26 th international film festival, which took place in Paris from November 19-25, attracted 87 films from 37 countries.-
