Description

AS LONG AS I REMEMBER: AMERICAN VETERANOS examines the steep personal toll and enduring legacy of the Vietnam War on three artists from south Texas: visual artist Juan Farias, author Michael Rodriguez and actor/poet Eduardo Garza. Through the personal histories and experiences of these Chicano veterans, the film reveals the important role art plays in sorting their memories, celebrating their culture, and treating the long-term impact of their military experience including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Through these film clips and lesson plan, students will understand what PTSD is and about its prevalence in the general population, especially among combat veterans. They will also discuss how the specific social and political experiences of Latino veterans interviewed in AS LONG AS I REMEMBER: AMERICAN VETERANOS contributed to their experience of PTSD, and the benefit of art-based therapy in Vietnam Veterans' lives and the lives of veterans of modern warfare.
