The above photograph was taken in Hua Nam Nga, Sayaburi Province, Laos, in 1968, during the Secret War in Laos.
It shows a Yao village headman pointing to machine gun bullet holes in a book written by their old Chinese teacher, after their village was attacked by Communist Pathet Lao forces, who shot up the school room. A family of 8 were also killed in the village during the night raid.
Our new film, M.I.A. A Greater Evil. Set in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, the film deals with the possible fate of US servicemen left behind after the US pulled out of the Vietnam War.
