M.I.A. A Greater Evil – Controversial New Vietnam War Film Raises Questions About the Fate of American POWs

Multicom Entertainment Group will release M.I.A. A Greater Evil (M.I.A.) in the US on May 8, two weeks after the film’s LA premier at the Silicon Beach Film Festival, where it won the award for Best International Film.

A supernatural thriller, M.I.A. deals with the fate of American POWs and MIAs left behind in the jungles of Laos at the end of the Vietnam War. The film follows a group of college students on an expedition looking for gold in the war torn jungles of Vietnam. Their dreams quickly unravel when an unplanned detour leaves the group lost and wandering where many American soldiers have mysteriously vanished without a trace.

The film is the directorial debut of Thai-Indian filmmaker Abishek J. Bajaj, who won the Best Director award for M.I.A. at the Logcinema Art Film Festival earlier this year. Written by award-winning screenwriter Peter Alan Lloyd, the film comes at a time of renewed interest in the Vietnam War. Shooting for the US, UK, Thai co-production took place in Thailand last year, and the film has since been doing the rounds of the film festival circuit, picking up official selections in the US, UK, India and Russia.

The film stars Valerie Bentson (Bad Genius), Lamou Vissay (Truy Sat), Eoin Obrien (King Arthur and the Knights of the Round TableNever Back Down: No Surrender), and Sahajak Boonthanakit (No EscapeOnly God Forgives).

M.I.A. A Greater Evil will be available on DVD, Cable, VOD, and Digital from May 8, 2018.
