Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn? - with Filmmakers In Person

Who Killed Lt. Van Dorn? - with Filmmakers In Person

Presented by California Film Institute at Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center

Not everyone who died for their country had to die for their country.

The widow of a Navy helicopter pilot killed in a 2014 training exercise spurs an investigation that uncovers a long history of institutional failings that led to her husband’s death.

Told through the eyes of survivors–pilots, mechanics and family members–viewers are taken on a journey from a single helicopter squadron into the heart of the murky inner workings of the American defense establishment.

The first film to come from the Investigative Reporting Program at UC-Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism is an expose that is both poignant and revealing.
