THE WAR LESS TRAVELLED

DIRECTED BY LAUREN ANDERS BROWN 

WITH TRAN DOAN

60 MINUTES

If a war happens before you’re born and Agent Orange is still in the pipes poisoning the water today, is the war really over? Following Vietnamese-Americans facing their past, we learn the revisionist history of the ‘Resistance War Against America’ that the current generation is left fighting to this day.

The War Less Travelled has been selected as a finalist in the Whickers Radio & Audio Award 2020.

"This project is really important, really urgent, and it is an untold story about the Vietnamese boat people and intergenerational issues that the protagonist is facing.”

-Pam Fraser Soloman
