Shot in Vietnam in 1971, this film captures a trip to the Bao Sanh Orphanage, with images of children and soldiers standing outside and a view of the road from a moving vehicle. The Marcellus Hartman Collection consists of over 300 Super 8 films made by Hartman, a Texan, while serving in the military in Vietnam in the early 1970s. The films document everyday life on his base, capturing the comings and goings of soldiers and others who worked on the base, helicopters arriving and taking off, and images of the surrounding landscape from Hartman's visits to cities and other military locations in Vietnam.
