A film documentary examining the birth defects issue in Viet Nam related to Agent Orange exposure. Research undertaken by Hatfield Consultants Ltd. is outlined, as is our “hotspot” theory. The “hotspot” theory relates to former US military installations where Agent Orange was stored, dispensed, sprayed, and spilled. These facilities, it is theorized, have the highest levels of dioxin contamination to which local populations are potentially being exposed. The passage of dioxin through the human food chain contaminating human blood and breast milk is clearly outlined.
This film has been awarded the prize for the best investigative journalism documentary at the Moscow Law and Society Film Festival in 2003.
