A SHRINKWRAP PRODUCTION


Leave no soldier

A DOCUMENTARY MADE IN THE U.S.A.


"Leave No Soldier is a unique documentary about soldiers and war. It probes two opposite responses to the Vietnam and Iraq conflicts, both of them involving love for comrades--support for their war, and opposition to it. Advocates of both views are treated with deep sympathy, and in the end all war-making is open to question."

"In "Leave No Soldier" Dr. Bassin has created a deeply moving tribute to the American men and women who fight their country's wars and are so profoundly altered by that experience. Bassin uses veterans own narratives to portray the singular patriotism of those for whom political action has become a significant route to recovery from their wars.


She presents vets' voices with uncommon sensitivity and respect as they convey the bonds that tie them to one another and too, their unique understanding of the anguish that distinguishes their lives. As one Vietnam vet puts it: "Vietnam vets look at these Iraq veterans...they really are our children."


This is a film that offers an uncommon entry into the hearts and minds of veterans and the indelible marks their wars have left on their bodies and their psyches. As Bassin herself might say, "Leave No Soldier" makes the viewer more witness than mere bystander."
