ERASE AND FORGET is an investigative documentary which charts the extraordinary life and times of Bo Gritz, one of America’s highest decorated veterans and the 'inspiration' for Rambo and Brando's Colonel Kurtz.

Using never before seen archive footage of covert US operations, and interviews filmed over a ten-year period, ERASE AND FORGET is a compelling inquiry into the nature of human conscience and the limits of deniability, charting ‘the deep bonds between Hollywood’s fictionalized conflicts and America’s hidden wars’.

‘like a Lynchian nightmare of right-wing America’. Total Film.

Following the screening director Andrea Zimmerman will be in discussion with David Neiwart, expert in American right-wing extremism and author of Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right (Verso)
