Koji Everard and Hana Kateman’s film, Legacies of War, looks at the aftermath of the Secret War on Laos, and particularly the millions of unexploded bombs that daily affect its citizens. Interviews with bomb removal experts explore the challenging task of clearing the land, as well as the role of women in this effort. Other interviewees include those providing services to the maimed and injured, as well as the injured survivors themselves.
This teen-produced documentary resulted from An Investigative Journalism Adventure to Laos, a program of Friendship Tours World Travel and Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City, California, led by Emmy Award-winning journalist Jeff MacIntyre (Content Media Group), artist/educator Cheri Gaulke, and history teacher Alethea Paradis.
