Return (to Vietnam): Clips from a new documentary

December 5, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

FILM SNEAK PREVIEW: A Montana veteran’s father-son journey to Vietnam: retracing his steps, confronting his PTSD, and seeking out America’s abandoned allies. Producer: Stan Parker; Director: Pete Tolton; Production Company: Beartooth Films. Thursday at Noon – December 5. The museum will feature clips from the forthcoming documentary, “Return.” Stan Parker and Pete Tolton have been working on a feature-length documentary. This film project took them, and Jim Markel Sr. and Jim Markel Jr., to Vietnam last spring, where they visited many of the places Jim Sr. served during the war. The forthcoming documentary recounts this adventure and everything that came with it: PTSD, family healing, and seeking out the indigenous people Jim Sr. lived and served with during the war. Come out and support their efforts. We got to see clips of their film last month and are excited about seeing the finished work in 2020.
