Fort Ord: A Sense of Place is a compilation of new student-created documentary and experimental shorts centering on the ecology, community, and history of what was once the largest US Army base in the American West. Soldiers deployed to the Vietnam War were trained at Fort Ord — an activity that inadvertently preserved the wilderness areas. These students at California State University Monterey Bay also recorded veterans’ oral histories for inclusion in the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress. (Various titles and filmmakers, HD video, approximately 60 minutes)
These films have screened at the National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History and the Monterey Museum of Art.
