About the Author:

As a photographer and undergraduate student at the University of California at Santa Barbara during 1970, Desilet's experiences of the key events serve as the foundation for this docu/drama story. He subsequently earned a Master's degree in communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder and during the last four decades has published essays and books in philosophy, communication, and media culture. With his varied background, Desilet brings to this narrative, through its characters, a many-layered treatment of the complex and extraordinarily divided American social and political landscape of the Vietnam war-torn era.
