We are humbled to honor those who define honor. On this Veterans Day, please give a moment of thanks to our veterans, active duty military members and their families.
Many thanks to all who participated in the recent post-show Q&A discussions in Los Angeles and New York City! And many thanks to the staff at both the iconic Laemmle Music Hall 3 in Beverly Hills and the venerable Quad Cinema in Greenwhich Village. Unclaimed is running in both cities through May 8.
"In war, there are no unwounded soldiers" - Jose Narosky
April 30 marks the fall of Saigon, South Vietnam's capital, and the official end of the Vietnam War. The Paris Peace Accords, signed in early 1973, ended the United States' direct involvement in Vietnam and allowed a prisoners of war exchange following a U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam. The fall of Saigon signaled the return to a communist Vietnam.
Many continue to question just how many we left behind. It's a question we can't ignore. More than 1,600 Missing In Action service members from the Vietnam War remain unaccounted for. Our hearts are with Vietnam veterans, the fallen, the missing, and their families.
Our own, very talented UNCLAIMED film editors, Jonathan Mathew and Nick Zacharkiw, have been nominated for a prestigious 2014 CCE Award by the Canadian Cinema Editors Association. Jonathan and Nick have been recognized for their work in the "Best Editing in Documentary" category; winners will be announced at the CCE Awards show on June 5 in Toronto. Congratulations to both!

Unclaimed has been invited to screen at the Lifetree Film Festival in the artist community of Loveland, Colorado, on April 11.
The overarching theme of the Lifetree Film Fest is to showcase films demonstrating people "doing life" or "doing good." The non-profit festival chooses films that "often celebrate the human condition and dive headlong into topics that make us laugh, cry, expand our understanding, give us hope, or cause us to think." We're delighted that Lifetree recognized Unclaimed's theme of "love and brotherhood" as worthy of screening!
