Lou Reda Productions, producers of 2009 MIPCOM Pick WWII in HD (or WWII: Lost Films internationally) is the team behind this archive-based exploration of the Vietnam War. As with that WWII doc special, Vietnam: Lost Films utilizes uncensored Vietnam War footage from private collections, museums, veterans’ organizations, the U.S. government and news organizations, restored in HD. Many of the clips were shot by soldiers in action, capturing a first-person glimpse into the horror and heroism that marked the conflict.

Like its predecessor, Vietnam: Lost Films will also incorporate a narrative element. The experiences of 13 veterans will be brought to life via voiceovers from actors such as Edward Burns, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Adrian Grenier, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Zachary Levi and Blair Underwood. Michael C. Hall (Dexter) narrates.
