Synopsis

Combining archive footage from a vast array of sources – including amateur film of Ho Chi Minh – Emile de Antonio exposes politicians’ lies and the way in which his country devastated the land and people of Vietnam in the name of ‘peace’.

Our take

During the height of American involvement in Vietnam, documentarian Emile de Antonio explored the origins of the war. The film was met with controversy and even hostility, including bomb threats and vandalism, but was nominated for an Oscar® and remains a potent document of the era.
