At Tu Du Hospital in Saigon, babies in a special unit have enlarged heads or are missing limbs. Pham Thi Thuy Linh, born without arms, writes with her feet. A boy with a shrunken leg careens around the corridor in a wheelchair.

Thirty-two years after the end of the Vietnam War, they are among several million victims of Agent Orange. In The Last Ghost of War, we meet victims who are plaintiffs in a class action suit against 32 US chemical companies.

These Vietnamese victims are seeking compensation and justice. The question is were these dioxin-laden herbicides chemical weapons? And if so, who should be held accountable in the wake of what was arguably the largest chemical warfare operation in history?

The Last Ghost of War is a presentation of the Center for Asian American Media with support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Newsday called it "a powerful tool" and a hard-to-watch-but-must-see documentary." Narrated by Kevin Kline, produced by Pham Quoc Thai and Janet Gardner and directed by Ms. Gardner, The Last Ghost of War was shot on location in Vietnam, France and the United States. Running time: 57 minutes.
