  • We Went to War

    2012. Great Britain/Ireland. Directed by Michael Grigsby, Rebekah Tolley. Acclaimed British director Michael Grigsby's 1970 film I Was a Soldier, one of the first films about Vietnam veterans returning home from the war, followed three Texans—Dennis, David, and Lamar—as they tried to readjust to life back home after a year in combat. More than 40 years after that film’s release, Grigsby and his collaborator Rebekah Tolley returned to interview the older, scarred trio, and the result is We Went to War. Portions of the earlier film are interwoven with new footage, matching shots from the past with the present to create a deeply meaningful dialogue across time. Courtesy Tarian Films. (IS) 77 min.
