"A must-see documentary"..."A catalyst to a much-needed national conversation on Agent Orange" - NEWSDAY

 

At Tu Du Hospital in Saigon, babies in a special unit have enlarged heads or are missing limbs. Pham Thi Thuy Linh, born without arms, writes with her feet. A boy with a shrunken leg careens around the corridor in a wheelchair.

Thirty years after the end of the Vietnam war, they are among several millions of victims of Agent Orange


In The Last Ghost of War, we meet victims who are plaintiffs in a class action suit against 32 US chemical companies. Attorneys, activists and scientists take us to a new battlefield.

 


These Vietnamese victims are seeking compensation and justice. The question is were these dioxin-laden herbicides chemical weapons? And if so, who should be held accountable in the wake of what was allegedly the largest chemical warfare operation in history?



Narrated by Kevin Kline, Produced by Pham Quoc Thai and Janet Gardner, directed by Ms. Gardner.
