directed by David Bradbury
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This Academy Award- nominee is a must for all courses dealing with the Vietnam War and its divisive effect on the American people. Its focus is Neil Davis, a news cameraman whose famous combat footage was shown all over the world. As an Australian, he perceived the war from a different perspective than any American journalist. Davis formed a deep attachment to the Vietnamese troops and was even allowed to cross enemy lines. He was the only Western journalist to film the fall of Saigon. His insights into the many ironies of this war will allow younger audiences to understand its complexities and its horrors.
