Going Upriver; The Long War of John Kerry. Feature length documentary loosely based on "Tour of Duty" by Douglas Brinkley. "Examines the story of John Kerry and the key events that made him a national figure and the man he is today."

Director George Butler began documenting Kerry's journey with photograph's in 1969 when he realized Kerry's importance to his generation during his leadership of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). More than a biography, this movie records the story of an American generation that came of age during the tumultuous 60's and early 70's. Archival film, photos, interviews and contemporary images tell the story.
