Vietnam [electronic resource]: The Wandering Souls

ABC International
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Using war records, old maps, and other archival materials, two of Australia's Vietnam veterans have produced the first comprehensive account of where nearly 4,000 missing Vietnamese soldiers might be found. In a country where most families lost someone during the war, the enduring grief is not knowing where a loved one fell. Without that knowledge many Vietnamese believe their dead will wander endlessly and without peace. Reporting on the impact of the new revelations, this film also follows a third Australian veteran who has kept some powerful reminders of his time in combat-a journal, a book of poetry, and a scarf owned by one or more North Vietnamese soldiers. The journey to return the diary to its author's mother becomes an emotionally cathartic pilgrimage back to Vietnam, one that generates considerable interest among the local media. When the handover finally occurs, there's not a dry eye in the house.
