Written and performed by Jude Narita and directed by Darling Narita, Walk The Mountain is about the War in Vietnam and what remained after "the war was over." It powerfully affirms the humanity and spirit of the Vietnamese and Cambodian people while examining the lingering effects of the war. In war, the enemy is purposely kept faceless. In Walk The Mountain we meet some of the "faceless enemy." Among them are a doctor working in the jungle hospitals, a freedom fighter imprisoned in a tiger cage, a mother searching for her sons, and an immigrant in America who dreams of flying. Narita takes you into their lives-their joys and sorrows, their courage, and their dreams for the future. Similarities to today's wars are not intentional, but are unavoidable.
