Dear American from Vietnam is an grammy Award–winning 1987 documentary, inspired by the book of the same title, directed by Bill Couturié. Using real letters written by US soldiers and archive footage, the film creates a highly personal experience of the Vietnam War. The film won the Special Jury Prize: Documentary at Sundance Film Festival in 1988. It was also screened out of competition at the 1988 Cannes Film Festival. Roger Ebert commented, "There have been many great movies about Vietnam. This is the one that completes the story.
