On Two Fronts, Latinos & Vietnam 

On Two Fronts: Latinos & Vietnam examines the Latino experience during a war that placed its heaviest burden on working-class youth and their communities. Framing the documentary are memoirs of two siblings, Everett and Delia Alvarez, who stood on opposite sides of the Vietnam War, one as a POW and the other protesting at home. 

The program raises issues that remain relevant today. In communities where there were few alternatives to service, war impacted every household - especially among Latinos. How did this affect the young men who served on the front lines? How did it impact their communities? During the Vietnam War, Latinos began asking for the first time: What is the true cost of war and the appropriate price of citizenship? 

Filmed on location throughout the Southwest and in Vietnam, On Two Fronts combines lush photography with home movies, vivid news footage, and a trove of personal photographs.
