Abandoned Allies is a documentary about the Montagnards who fought alongside U.S. Green Berets during the Vietnam War. Montagnards saved the lives of many American soldiers. Since the fall of Saigon in 1975, many Montagnards have fled Vietnam as political refugees. Those that remain in their homeland face severe persecution. U.S. veterans still fight to keep the promises they made on the battle grounds more than 40 years ago.
“Abandoned Allies was my very first film. I’m so grateful to everyone that helped make this film possible. It took five years of blood, sweat, and tears to finish. In a lot of ways, it was my film school.”
– Camden Watts, Director of Abandoned Allies
