Canopy director Aaron Wilson talks to Film Society of Lincoln Center about approaching the subject of war from an angle of isolation and self-reflection.

Says Wilson, "What drove me to create the film was hearing first-hand accounts of war in Southeast Asia during World War II. Personal stories revealing the vulnerability of young men—just boys, really—navigating life in between the sorts of battles we're accustomed to seeing in war films. Moments of being fearful, lonely, and isolated... emotions that I as a person who had never been to war could connect with. Canopy is about these spaces between battles, and the sorts of emotions and connections with other human beings that would stay with them for the rest of their lives."

The film is running for a week at the Film Society of Lincoln Center for a week, beginning today. Read the full story here.
