"The pictures of the reenactors shy away from some of the more subversive scenes that they performed- whether taking prisoners or their rough handling of the other camp. I didn’t find it fruitful to dwell on that or try to replicate some of the horrific moments that happened during the Vietnam War. I stayed away from that, and obviously that comes from my personal background."
