What is the personal cost of war? Soldiers fight for us, and do not comprehend that their memories will affect them the rest of their lives. And as citizens of a country making them fight, do we really understand that human cost? Can these memories of killing ever be erased?
All these questions and more serve as the backbone of Killing Memories, a feature- length documentary that follows five American war veterans who served together in Vietnam 40 years ago as they reunite to tour battlefields, meet former enemies, and confront the ghosts of their past. Though the film is focused on overcoming the wounds of the past, it resonates loudly in the present, as America continues fighting wars and sending her children into battle.
