The Real MASH (Canada) – US Premiere!
Directed by Min Sook Lee
Documentary Short (48 Minutes)
The Real MASH traces the original stories that inspired the fictional TV series and film set during the Korean War.
Both pushed buttons on cultural and social frontiers but Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) units were more like renegade units and early indicators of the social turmoil and tensions that were to unfold later in the USA.
Interviews with MASH actors, including Jamie Farr, Loretta Swit and Gary Burghoff, co-creator Gene Reynolds, as well as the military surgeons, doctors, nurses, pilots and enlisted men who served in the war are blended with dramatic recreations, archival film and rare photographs to tell the true stories behind the MASH series.
Following the film screenings the Canadian Embassy will host a VIP reception.
*SHORT BLOCK is Part of “A Salute to International Warriors” Event: Includes Films Telegram Man, We Were Vanquished, M.I.L.O., and The Real MASH and a VIP Reception.
