BEING TIGHT is a music-based, short documentary built on the 4000 photos made by three-tour Vietnam war combat veteran, Marc C. Waszkiewicz. This short focuses on the camaraderie experienced by veterans of combat and is augmented by video interviews—made by Marc and a PBS crew in 1995—with Marc’s former brothers-in-arms. BEING TIGHT is drawn from a full-length documentary film (Tripwire!), offering an eyes-wide-open look at life “in country” and at the effects of combat on those involved.
