[edit] Information

An epic and powerful history of America woven from the personal story of heavily decorated retired US Major Robert 'Snuffy' Gray who fought with the controversial US 7th Cavalry Regiment. Exploring the profound human consequences of wars fought at the American frontier, Emmy award-winning filmmaker, Tom Roberts journeys with Snuffy Gray across the United States as he is reunited with veterans from Korea and Vietnam. America's first war at the frontier against Native American tribes such as the Lakota in the 19th Century echo throughout the film, as Snuffy's personal story cuts across that of the Lakota, and the story his 7th Cavalry Regiment takes from the Korean War all the way back to Custers Battle at Little Bighorn and the Regiment's massacre of Lakota civilians at Wounded Knee. At the heart of the film is Snuffy Gray's own psychological journey as, for the first time, he faces up to demons that have haunted him for forty years, and seeks atonement with veterans of America's secret war in Vietnam. Coproduced by NHK/October Films, BBC, WDR-ARTE and DRTV, 2009
