Film gives Vietnam veterans a voice

Film gives Vietnam veterans a voice

Vietnam veterans fought on a battlefield as brutal and deadly as most wars in history, but their story "is met with angst and controversy," and a local film producer is giving them a voice.

"Our Vietnam Generation," produced by Visionalist Entertainment Productions, will premiere Jan. 28 at Detroit's Fox Theatre, and featured among its frames is the story of Livingston County Sheriff Bob Bezotte and businessman John Colone, the unofficial mayor of Hell.

"Vietnam veterans fought in the most controversial and longest wars," director Keith Famie of Visionalist said. "They are the leaders of our community. ... So much of our society has no clue of what they did when they were younger. They are very humble."

The documentary focuses on struggles experienced by Michigan Vietnam veterans, who received a much different homecoming than other generations, said Famie, a nine-time Emmy winner.
