The USA Film Festival will present a series of nonfiction short films, including:

  • Courtney Marsh’s shattering War Within the Walls, which follows 16 year-old Chau, who lives in a Vietnamese peace camp for children disabled by the effects of Agent Orange, and who dreams of becoming a professional clothing designer.
  • Nina Gilden Seavey’s Parables of War, where history, dance and drama converge in choreographer Liz Lerman’s powerful dance project featuring veterans and their stories (with Bill Pullman).
  • Scott Edwards’ poignant Master Hoa's Requieum, where 70-year-old Vietnamese martial arts master Nguyen Tien Hoa returns to Southeast Asia to search for the graves of his wife and children, who were killed by pirates while fleeing Vietnam.
  • Ned MacNeilage’s Showfolk, featuring seven of Hollywood’s golden era veterans residing together in the Motion Picture & Television Fund home who share their life stories, humor and wisdom.
