In the Year of the Pig

1968 NR

Filmed at the height of the Vietnam War, director Emile de Antonio's unabashedly subjective documentary blasts American involvement in the conflict, with startling and disturbing images adding emotional intensity to this scathing critique. Through news footage and interviews with military figures, journalists and politicians, the provocative filmmaker traces modern Southeast Asian history and makes an argument for Vietnamese self-determination.
