Erase and Forget

2 Mar 201813 Mar 2018

Andrea Luka Zimmerman's Erase and Forget is a new investigative documentary charting the extraordinary life and times of Bo Gritz, one of America's highest decorated veterans and the 'inspiration' for Sylvester Stallone's Rambo and Marlon Brando's Colonel Kurtz.  

Using never before seen archive footage of covert US operations accompanied by interviews filmed over a ten year period, Erase and Forget is a compelling inquiry into the nature of human conscience and the limits of deniability, and embodies contemporary American society in all its dizzying complexity and contradictions.  

Charting 'the deep bonds between Hollywood's fictionalized conflicts and America's hidden wars', Erase and Forget provides a complex perspective of an individual and a country in crisis.
