EUGENE, Ore. -- After more than four decades of production, two Lane County residents are finally having an Oregon premiere of the Vietnam documentary they made.

"Vietnam: An Inner View" features seven Vietnam veterans and their day to day lives in the line of duty during the war.

One of the producers of film said the documentary shows viewers the mental and emotional health issues that many veterans face during and after the war.

"Some of them went in and came out not unchanged, but relatively undamaged,” Lea Jones said. “Some of them went through it and didn't survive their homecoming. I mean some of them are no longer with us because they took their own lives."

He also said the film is geared toward bringing veterans out of isolation.


Jones said the premiere will be at Tsunami Book store on Sunday February 25th from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
