During the Vietnam War, vast quantities of a herbicidal chemical were sprayed across the battlefield to defoliate the jungles of Vietnam to improve the strategic position of United State troops against the Viet-Cong. This chemical’s code name is known as Agent Orange.
A marine, Alfred Nostrand served during the Vietnam War where, inevitably, he was exposed to Agent Orange.
Thirty-five years later, in 2005, Alfred passed away from cancer of the liver.
In 2013, Alfred’s son, Christopher Nostrand, the filmmaker, opens the wound of losing his father in “Silent Exposure,” uncovering the issue of Agent Orange use in the Vietnam War. On his journey, Chris meets with professionals and his own family to unravel new findings and surprises experts with his story.
