The 2 Sides Project, Special Edition by Istrico Productions documents the connection of sons and daughters whose fathers were killed on opposite sides of the Vietnam War, through photographs and film. A dozen Gold Star Americans have now met face-to-face with more than 60 Vietnamese sons and daughters, and the story of their first meeting has been featured in an award-winning documentary film, now airing on PBS stations across the U.S and available on PBS online.

Anthony Istrico, of Istrico Productions, and his team are exhibiting still photos and stories from their Vietnam experiences in Del Ray Artisans’ gallery from July 11 – July 14, 2019. Join us for a reception on Friday, July 12 from 7-9pm to meet the photographers.

During this exhibit, there will be two showings of the documentary film (view trailer), followed by Q & A:
