A trailer is now up for Inside This Peace, a documentary about an Agent Orange victim that I wrote about last month.
Here is the trailer:
An unintended consequence was that 4 million Vietnamese people were exposed to a chemical no one fully understood at the time. We understand now. Agent Orange exposure has been linked to rashes, cancer, birth defects, and severe psychological and neurological problems not only among the Vietnamese, but also U.S. servicemen and the offspring of both.
One ailment linked to Agent Orange exposure is chloracne, a skin condition that produces acne-like eruptions of cysts, pustules and blackheads, just like what you now find all over Thoa.
Matt Coker has been engaging, enraging and entertaining readers of newspapers, magazines and websites for decades. He spent the first 13 years of his career in journalism at daily newspapers before “graduating” to OC Weekly in 1995 as the paper’s first calendar editor. He went on to be managing editor, executive editor and is now senior staff writer.
