Episode 54: Da Five Bloods

In this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal, host Michael Shields, with the help of film historian and writer Christina Niedan, explores the latest release from prolific filmmaker Spike Lee entitled Da Five Bloods. The film’s plot follows a group of aging Vietnam War veterans who return to the country in search of the remains of their fallen squad leader, as well as a treasure they buried while serving there. Da Five Bloods features an extraordinary ensemble cast, anchored by a stunning performance by Delroy Lindo, and delves into weighty and relevant themes ultimately expounding upon an all too overlooked subject in American cinema — the experience of black veterans in the Vietnam War.
