As Long As I Remember

Release Date: 2009-01-14
Produced by San Antonio filmmaker Laura Varela, the documentary chronicles the experience of three South Texas Vietnam-era veterans who are also artists: visual artist Juan Farias, author Michael Rodriguez, and poet/performance artist Eduardo Garza. The film takes the audience through the lives of the artists and their families: growing up in the Mexican-American community, their military service in Vietnam, and their lives after the war. Through their stories the film examines the role of art in memory, post-traumatic stress syndrome, activism, and the current conflict in Iraq. The film will be followed by a discussion and reception sponsored by the San Antonio Film Commission.
