War has a dirty secret: it never really ends. Aftermath: The Remnants of War weaves archival images and personal stories into a powerful portrait of lingering devastation. Based on the Gelber Award-winning book by Donovan Webster, this insightful film reveals the twentieth century as the most violent in all of human history, with a death toll of more than one hundred million.

Filmed on location in Russia, France, Bosnia and Vietnam, the documentary features personal accounts of individuals involved in the cleanup of war: de-miners who risk their lives on a daily basis, psychologists working with distraught soldiers in Bosnia, a treasure hunter turned archeologist in Stalingrad, and scientists and doctors struggling with the contamination of dioxin used during the Vietnam War. The poignant stories convey a sobering message as we face the realization that war doesn't end when the fighting stops.

Warning: some scenes contain graphic images.
