Marking the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Tonkin Gulf Resolution (August 10, 1964), producers Marc C. Waszkiewicz and Lea Jones present a live performance of their multi-media documentary project, Viet Nam: An Inner View.

THE SHOW -- This performance explores the combat experience and its aftermath, employing Marc's stirring photographs, dramatic readings from his memoirs, breath-taking photos & videos and amazing original music. Truly an "unvarnished look at the effects of combat on warriors," this presentation delves deep into the combat experience. Veterans and civilians young and old will have new insights to take away. Q&A/discussion follows the presentation.

The evening begins with a reception for advance ticket holders, who will meet the producers while enjoying complementary hors d'ouvres & refreshments. The soon-to-be-released photobook, 1000 Yard Stare, will be previewed and available for purchase (autographed by the producers).

This recent radio interview (KLCC-FM) describes the live show while explaining the larger goals of the project:

Songs from the soundtrack -- Warspeak -- can be previewed here:
