CGH Movie Night – Docuseries in Global Health: A Taste for Humanity
Thursday, March 16th at 5:30 pm
Our next film “Eternal Harvest”, takes place between 1964 and 1973. In an offshoot of the Vietnam War, the U.S. military dropped 4 billion pounds of explosives on Laos, making it the most heavily bombed country on the planet. ETERNAL HARVEST Introduces Laotians who lived through the bombing campaign and those who live with bombs in their fields today. Jim Harris, who is a retired school principal from Wisconsin, has returned year after year for more than 20 years—to atone for the incredible devastation committed by his government.
