Winter Soldier is a documentary about a group of Vietnam veterans who came together in the early 1970s to confess. The 125 or so former members of the armed forces admitted, personally, to committing the atrocities that have since been represented in feature films, books, rock music, and any number of other creative outlets; "the horror" of what happened in Southeast Asia is something of a horrible cliché at this point. So how does it happen that Abu Ghraib has been described as "unprecedented"? Involved with the filming of this obscure doc are "Hanoi" Jane Fonda, producer; John Kerry, well-spoken veteran; and Barbara Kopple, the sound technician who would go on to win many Academy Awards. Screenings start nightly at 7 and 9 (continuing through Sept. 8) at the Roxie Cinema, 3117 16th St. (at Valencia), S.F. Admission is $4-8; call 863-1087 or visit
