Phan Thi Kim Phuc - The Human Suffering

A Community Access screening of a 43 minute filmed talk by Phan Thi Kim Phuc, the Canadian/Vietnamese woman whose picture, as a 9-year-old, was seen across the world as she ran down a road screaming in pain away from her napalmed village.  She tells her story (at a local church service) which is also illustrated with film and still pictures from the war era and her specific "moment."
