Veronica Skin and Body Care Center in Malibu, California hosted the Operation Smile Premiere for “A Cure to War,” narrated by Craig T. Nelson on September 21, 2011. The event was an inspirational tribute to the phenomenal organization that has contributed to restoring relations with Vietnam and helped so many children around the world keep smiling. Veronica commented, “I have a very strong affinity for Operation Smile and the work that they do. I was thrilled to make the connection to Craig T. Nelson who so graciously agreed to narrate this important documentary. We have held several fundraisers at our Spa and so many of our clients and friends have come out to support this organization because the work that they do is so meaningful and impressive.”

“A Cure to War” was directed and produced by Patrick Heaphy. Musicians David Palmer, Chuck Kentis and Tinh Mahoney provided an original score. The film uniquely weaves the stories of seven individuals, whose independent efforts would help to rebuild relations between Vietnam and the United States, recover the remains of soldiers lost in the Vietnam War, and bring smiles to tens of thousands of Vietnamese children and their families by providing access to free surgical healthcare.
