Last Days in Vietnam

Loading...
"April 1975. During the chaotic final days of the Vietnam War, as the North Vietnamese Army closed in on Saigon, the South Vietnamese resistance crumbled. The United States had only a skeleton crew of diplomats and military operatives still in the country. With the lives of thousands of South Vietnamese hanging in the balance, those in control faced an impossible choice -- who would go and who would be left behind to face brutality, imprisonment or even death. At the risk of their careers and possible courts-martial, a handful of individuals took matters into their own hands. Engaging in unsanctioned and often makeshift operations, they waged a desperate effort to evacuate as many South Vietnamese as possible"--Container.

America in the 20th Century: Volume 8 Vietnam

"Vietnam was the longest war in America's history and the most divisive in more than a century. Even today, decades after the fall of Saigon, U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia remains misunderstood, misinterpreted and misrepresented. Vietnam explodes the genesis of America's 'quagmire' -- from the roots of Vietnamese nationalism, through a century of French colonialism and the first Indochina war, to the final tragic moments in the spring of 1975"--Original container.

Vietnam Symphony

Loading...
In 1965, as the Vietnam War intensified and Hanoi faced the threat of massive US bombing, students and teachers from the National Conservatory of Music were forced to flee the city for the relative safety of a small village in the countryside. With the help of villagers, they built an entire campus underground, creating a maze of hidden tunnels, connecting an auditorium and classrooms. Here, as the war raged around them, they lived, studied and played music for five years. Stunning black and white archival footage captures almost surreal scenes of pianos wheeled on handcarts along dusty tracks, performances during heavy bombardments, the cooperation of peasants and performing artists the pragmatic and the sublime. This remarkable footage is combined with contemporary interviews with [...]
