theater world. It’s this influence and passion that make her such a talented creative. Nora has an uncanny way of finding and creating compelling stories.

MEET MARCO DURAN, Post-Production Assistant. Marco is researching and sourcing archival footage and music and securing rights for the film.

 

Only one film team was there to capture the dramatic moments when the two sides met for the first time.

Istrico Productions, led by Anthony Istrico, shot more than 150 hours of footage during the 2 Sides Project inaugural trip to Vietnam. Every important moment and every vibrant detail of our journey will come together in an extraordinary documentary in 2017.

Can't wait to see it? We can't wait to share it with you! In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at the film and the story that shows what happened when these six Americans connected with the other side, and what they encountered on their 11-day journey to Vietnam. 

You’ll share the moment when we finally meet the other side. You’ll be with us as we visit the sites where our fathers died. And you'll be transformed by a journey that opened our ears, and our hearts.

MEET THE DIRECTOR, Anthony Istrico, the founder of Istrico Productions. He has ten years of filming, editing and production experience and an uncanny ability to capture and create a compelling story. If he's not at the studio or on location, Anthony is either shopping on Amazon, dining out with his lovely wife Heather, or planning his next world adventure.

MEET JARED GRONEMAN,
Cameraman/Photographer/Animator.
As an IT professional in his past life, Jared was (and still is) an inquisitive problem solver. But passion eventually won over practical ability, and to the benefit of Istrico Productions he left NY and the IT world to move to
DC in pursuit of something he loves: being creative. Jared is an amazingly talented cameraman and photographer. He can always be found behind his Canon, or watching
a sci-fi flick, or running away from hoards of confused David Duchovny fans.

MEET NORA KUBACH, Creative Producer and Editor. Before she joined Istrico Productions, Nora was in New York City training as an actor and working in the theater world. It’s this influence and passion that make her such a talented creative. Nora has an uncanny way of finding and creating compelling stories. Her energy and excitement is evident in all that she does. When
not working, she can likely be found at any theater,
gallery or park, exploring her surroundings and simply enjoying life.

MEET MARCO DURAN, Post-Production Assistant. Marco is researching and sourcing archival footage and music and securing rights for the film. He's been with Istrico Productions for just a few months, but before that was producing content for short films and zombie jelly wrestling promos (seriously). Marco loves all kinds of movies and music. When not creating awesome content,

he's exploring the live music scene and consuming as many cheesesteaks as possible.

A very special thanks to those who donated to the making of the documentary!

Thank you for your generous support of the film.
