In Bombies, archival footage shows dozens of huge cluster bombs descending from B-52's passing over thick forests. Part-way down the bombs unfold into two halves, spraying two to six hundred and fifty small bomblets. These bomblets, as one writer described, " are stuffed with hundreds of metal chunks; after hitting the ground, each canister is designed to explode in a 150- yard arc. Some are filled with napalm, others with molten copper that penetrates armor plating. Others spray metal spikes that can pin a man to a tree."
Legacies of War, an exhibit that brings attention to the continuing consequences of the U.S. secret war in Laos from 1964 to 1973, opened in Boston this past week. It includes survivors’ illustrations, interviews from refugee camps, archival and contemporary photographs, and a documentary film, Bombies (a review of the film is forthcoming). Far more than a historical commemoration, the exhibit is an appeal to humanity and morality that technological militarism and imperial policy be accountable for the continuing slaughter of innocents.

The film, Sentenced Home is a quietly powerful film that explores the human side of the issue of Cambodian (Khmer) deportations.
