Click to EnlargeREGRET TO INFORM...
Directed by Barbara Sonneborn. On January 1, 1968, Barbara Sonneborn’s husband, Jeff Gurvitz, left to fight in Vietnam. Eight weeks later, on February 29, 1968, he crawled out of a foxhole during a mortar attack to rescue his radio operator and was killed. Sonneborn learned of her husband’s death on her 24th birthday. We regret to inform you...read the official notice.

Twenty years after Jeff’s death, Sonneborn went back to Vietnam - to the place where her husband was killed. Knowing that hundreds of thousands of other women had shared her grief, she made them – both American and Vietnamese war widows – part of her story. Filled with extraordinary archival footage from the war, breathtaking visions of modern day Vietnam, and heart-wrenching stories from a number of women who share Sonneborn’s story, REGRET TO INFORM is a journey into the heart and soul of war.
