Father Judge High School in Philadelphia suffered more fatalities in the Vietnam War than any other Catholic high school in America. Join us for a screening of a new, feature-length documentary film recounting the lives, military service, and deaths of the students who perished during the war and the lingering impact those losses still have on the community.

The film’s narrative is driven by interviews with family, friends, classmates, Father Judge staff, brothers in arms and military personnel. The film employs extensive archival film, video, photo and media materials and a soundtrack of period and contemporary music.

The film was produced by Irish American Films and Thistle Dew Studio, and premiered at Father Judge High School Auditorium in November 2018.
