More than any war, the media that brought the Vietnam War home to American audiences defined that conflict. In remembrance of the 40th anniversary of the fall of Saigon—the symbolic end to the war—this film series investigates radically different views of this war than we have typically seen. By combining contemporary historical documentaries with films from those troubled times, this series presents a more inclusive vision of the Vietnam War, one that did not make it onto the nightly news or the front pages of newspapers.

This series is sponsored by WTIU, IU Cinema, the Black Film Center/Archive, the Cinema and Media Studies program, The Media School, Indiana University Center for Documentary Research and Practice, and Veteran Support Services.
