Ripples of Wartime was specially commissioned by Brink to complement the stage production of Long Tan. Filmmaker Malcolm McKinnon presents stories from people impacted by the Vietnam War in a range of different ways. The exhibition presents first-hand stories not only from military veterans but also from post-war Vietnamese migrants, anti-war campaigners, family members of conscripted veterans and medical practitioners who served in Vietnam. Together, they reflect the way in which the Vietnam War excited and divided public opinion. These diverse stories are considered and reflective. For a country still at war in a foreign land, they aim to be instructive and provocative too.
