Agricola Media’s “Captain” Now Available on Amazon

I’m very pleased to announce that Agricola Media’s documentary “Captain” is now available here or on Amazon. The film is the moving story of a USMC Marine Vietnam veteran who made it his mission to learn about a forgotten nineteen year old Marine killed at the battle of Iwo Jima near the end of World War ll. Production for Captain began in December, 2011 and finished up May 20, 2012. The story is told by Captain Richard Updaw, USMC, who served in Vietnam from 1966-1970. His chance observation at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Rochester, NY was the trigger that drove months of research to find out
the the details behind the life and death of Cpl. Robert F. Hodes, a nineteen year old marine who died at the battle of Iwo Jima at the age of nineteen. For me, the experience of producing this film has been both moving and educational…I now have an inkling, just an inkling, of what it must have been like for those who fought and died, and I am in awe of what they gave up-and what their surviving comrades live with decades later.
