Renew Vietnam Indiegogo Campaign
Benjamin Welmond’s latest film project tells the story of Project Renew, an organization in Vietnam’s Quang Tri province dedicated to removing unexploded ordinances — bombs, mines and other dangerous explosives — in one of the most bombed places in history. In Quang Tri province there are over 800,000 pounds of bombs and Agent Orange still in the soil.
Q&A with filmmaker Benjamin Welmond and Project Renew’s founder Chuck Searcy and Veterans For Peace SF Chapter President Bill Creighton follow the screening. They discuss the legacies of these dangerous explosives and current information on the fight for institutional support to victims of Agent Orange.
The screening is an opportunity to get involved and learn about Project Renew. To donate and see the trailer for the film, please go here: indiegogo.com/projects/renew-vietnam-the-documentary#/story.
