Before John Kerry became the Democratic presidential nominee, author Paul Alexander began making Brothers in Arms, a film about the unique relationship that was formed by six men who endured the horrors of the Vietnam War together. Six American soldiers met on a swift boat on the Mekong Delta during some of the worst fighting of the Vietnam War. These men—Gene Thorson, David Alston, Tommy Belodeau, Del Sandusky, and their young commander, John Kerry—came from such disparate places as Iowa, Northern California, and South Carolina. Their shared experiences on that boat would connect and change their lives forever.

Brothers in Arms is Paul Alexander's first film. He is a playwright and author of numerous books including Man of the People: The Life of John McCain and The Candidate: Behind John Kerry's Remarkable Run for the White House. His nonfiction has appeared in the New York Times, the Village Voice, and Rolling Stone, among other publications. (68 mins.)
