In The Shadow of The Blade

Strap in, pull pitch, and take your heart on a ride!

Veterans of America’s longest war never talked about it – until a Huey come to town.

This emotion-packed documentary follows the 10,000-mile journey of a battle-scarred UH-1 “Huey” helicopter into America’s backyards to hear the untold stories of Vietnam War veterans and the families who waited for them to come home. The evocative healing power of this film has been described as “the most important thing to happen to Vietnam veterans since the dedication of The Wall.” Worldfest Film Festival Best of Show.
