TEHRAN (AIPFF) – “AGENT ORANGE: 30 YEARS LATER” directed by John Trinh, is a drama-documentary about the victims of Agent Orange 30 years after the Viet Nam War.

It interweaves compelling interviews with images culled from the archives to tell the tales of horror of people who were exposed to the substance when it was sprayed during the war, from babies to grandparents, male and female, North and South Viet Nam living with life-altering choices to make: pro-life or abortion, alien diseases, deformities, fear, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, pain, and poverty.

It is more of a drama than reportage, or an observation. The goal of this documentary is to make the viewer’s aware of the impact of dioxin on the environment and the people. The film also underscores the need for compassion and heightens a sense of responsibility for our actions towards each other as stewards of the planet without regard for political differences.

John Trinh is 53 years old and he grew up in Vietnam during the war; he later went to live in the U.S. in 1987. He did not know about Agent Orange until 2005, when he accidentally read the news about the U.S. government rejecting the claim of the Vietnamese AO/Dioxin victims.

John Trinh said his eager aspiration is for the U.S. government to admit its mistakes in the use of AO substance during the war in Vietnam and compensate all AO victims.

“Agent Orange: 30 Years Later” accounted as a foreign film, will participate in the 3rd Ammar International Film Festival 2016.
