Last Days in Vietnam

On the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon (April 28, 1975), Memorial University’s Department of Sociology and the Avalon Woodturners Guild are co-sponsoring a free screening of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Last Days in Vietnam.

A Q&A with world-renowned wood artist Binh Pho will follow the screening. Mr. Pho was a teenager on April 28, 1975, and narrowly missed being evacuated the evening American troops withdrew from Saigon. His story is featured in the film.

The screening begins at 7 p.m. in room A1043 of the Arts & Administration Building and free parking is available in lot 15B.
