Notes on the obliteration of language and memory Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s, the American government saw Vietnam as a sinister and mortal enemy. Twenty years later, Vietnam is seen as an unexploited market for American business, a source of cheap labor for American industry, and a tourist opportunity for American vacationers. This program brings together the voices of participants and their successors for a look at the war and what it did, and continues to do. The work is a personal essay, integrating the methods of feature, drama, and acoustic art.
