Director  of “Many May not Return,” Actor David Edward Reyes


A Chicano/Latino family, in crises as a consequence of two forces-an undeclared war (Vietnam) and their economic condition as a working-class family. A father proud of his history of fighting a dead end intervention in Korea only to come home to racism and economic oppression that causes his young son to turn to the military as an economic alternative and to find another son drafted against his will. Linda a young woman learns about the legacy of her family. She asks the questions; will the next generation face the same war issues, will the next generation feel the pain of war? Without a doubt, this is a story about how families will face the issues of war while living in a nation that is continuously at war.
