Free admission!
THE DONUT DOLLIES
USA | 2019 | DCP | 87 min.
Director: Norman Anderson
Two women bravely return to Vietnam after 46 years to remember their intense and transformative experiences as Red Cross “Donut Dollies”: volunteers who boosted the morale of battle-worn soldiers on the frontlines of the Vietnam War while negotiating their own unforgettable emotional journey. These women suffered heartache over the loss of soldiers who they befriended, consistently witnessed the sometimes gruesome sights of the wounded, were put under fire on base and in helicopters, and experienced PTSD as well as infertility and medical issues believed to have been caused by exposure to Agent Orange. The Donut Dollies provides a new entry into the canon of American women’s history.
