Soldiers’ Sanctuary

Soldiers’ Sanctuary

Soldiers’ Sanctuary is the first of its kind documentary focusing on veterans
of all wars and their struggles and varying degrees of desire to reconcile with former enemies.
This award winning film was produced by Luke L. Hansen of DACA Productions, LLC.,
who will join us for the evening.

Journey with a group of U. S. veterans of the Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam Wars
to the infamous battlefield in Khe Sanh, Vietnam. There they join in an emotional meeting
with veterans of the People’s Army. Together they create the foundation of the Khe Sanh Garden,
a world sanctuary being dedicated to the memory of fallen soldiers from all sides of
armed conflict and providing an opportunity for peaceful face-to-face reconciliation with former enemies.

Soldiers’ Sanctuary is “…charged with emotion and filled with new perspectives as enemies
work together to build modern day ties. A film for all vets, all wars and all those who care!”
Sandy Northrop, Producer, Vietnam Passage: Journeys from War to Peace, PBS
