Borne in War
This semi-autobiography traces the maker's birth on a secret CIA military base in the hills of Laos to his anti-war college years during the Persian Gulf War. Mixing archival footage, family photographs and dramatization, Thoj looks at how his life life has been controlled and his identity shaped by the war into which he was born, and finally links his personal history to Hmong history under French colonialism and during the American wars in Laos.
