The Toronto Star reports Edmonton filmmaker Michael Jorgenson found Army Sergeant John Robertson, 76, living in a rural Vietnam village “unable to speak English, remember his birthday, or names of the children he left behind in the U.S.” and documented it in his recently released movie, “Unclaimed.”
According to the website trailer: While working in Southeast Asia, a war torn veteran of the Vietnam War discovers a man claiming to be an American MIA and so begins his struggle to prove the lost soldier’s identity.
And Jorgenson does just that. According to the Journal, an Irish newspaper, “Jorgenson told the Toronto Star that he was skeptical when Vietnam vet Tom Faunce came to him and explained a man he’d found in Vietnam was a former “Army brother” listed as killed in action and forgotten. He says he became convinced only after going to Vietnam and meeting Robertson himself.”
