My Lai Memories
Forty three years ago a US Army unit stormed the Vietnamese village of My Lai and went on a killing spree that left hundreds of civilians dead. Now a Vietnamese director has made a movie about this infamous massacre.
For survivors of My Lai, the film 'Letters from Son My' brings back terrible memories: "the American soldiers entered the village, they rounded the villagers up...and started killing". But they weren't Viet Cong; the Americans were in the wrong place. Once they got there, they panicked and the massacre began. One woman recalls, "they shot at us...I was lying in the ditch pretending to be dead...children were screaming".FULL SYNOPSIS
