Soldados: Chicanos in Viet Nam the Documentary
Soldados: Chicanos in Viet Nam, the documentary is based upon the award winning book of the same name. It explores the experiences of five Chicano soldiers in the Vietnam War. Transported from the cotton fields of Corcoran, California to the rice paddies of Viet Nam, veterans faced the most dangerous situation of their lives. For most of them, it was their first trip outside of their hometown and the first time without their families. Soldados tells the tale of this journey: of young men leaving their families to experience the most horrifying aspects of war to their return home with the equally horrifying realization of how profoundly different the journey has made them. Soldados contains interviews with the principals as well as parents, wives, brothers, sisters, and children.
Soldados can serve as an important educational tool. Nationally, 38 colleges and universities have used Soldados as a textbook. The book has also been successful in the popular literature market.
