Willimantic, Conn. - Ron Osgood, filmmaker and professor of video productions at Indiana University, will discuss his film, "My Vietnam, Your Iraq" as part of Eastern Connecticut State University's University Hour series. Osgood's presentation will be held at 3 p.m. on April 13 in the Betty R. Tipton Room located in Eastern's Student Center. The public is invited. Admission is free.
The documentary features families from two generations who have served in U.S. wars--the parents in the Vietnam War and their children in The Iraq War. Osgood will discuss military service as public service and the impact that service has had on the eight families highlighted in the documentary.
The film will also be shown on April 14, at 7 p.m. in the Student Center Theatre and will be followed by a question and answer session. The event is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, the Department of Communication, the VETS Center and the Center for Community Engagement.
Osgood served in the U.S. Navy during the Vietnam War and has a bachelor's degree in communication and a master's degree in education from Southern Illinois University. He specializes in teaching documentary storytelling and production.
