This Week’s Snag Film: Unfinished Symphony

This week’s offering from Snag Films is Unfinished Symphony, an emotional, poetic, and lyrical journey back in time to reflect on the Vietnam War.

The film is divided into three sections which mirror the movements of Henryk Gorekis Symphony No. 3, the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, to which the film is set. The film focuses on a three-day protest in the form of a march, staged by newly returned veterans. Reversing the same path as Paul Revere’s famous ride of 1775, the mounted protest sought to bring renewed awareness to a long-fought, losing battle. Festivals Played: Sundance Film Festival – January 2001, Woods Hole Film Festival – July 2001.

Remember, you can watch free documentaries any time and share documentary films with the Snag Films Virtual Theater.
