Living in Exile 

During the Vietnam War, the indigenous Montagnard Dega people were some of the most loyal allies of the United States, and 85 percent of their villages were destroyed. Today, the Montagnards are fighting for survival and human rights in their homeland. North Carolina happens to contain the largest population of the tribal people outside of Vietnam. Kay Reibold, director of the Vietnam Highlands Assistance Project for Triangle Lutheran Family Services, has been working for 15 years with the Montagnard tribal people of Vietnam's Central Highlands. She has traveled to Vietnam 16 times since 1988, and recently returned from the Montagnard refugee camps in Cambodia, where she has discovered that the human rights crisis facing them has deepened. Reibold has produced, with Cheyney Hales, a documentary focusing on the Montagnard resistance movement. See their film, Living in Exile, at Durham's Center for Documentary Studies on Thursday, Aug. 23 at 7 p.m. See "Special Showings" for details.
