In the Year of the Pig

1968 / 103min / 35mm


De Antonio’s best-known film is a landmark of the burgeoning artistic protest against U.S. policy in Vietnam, drawing together found-footage material to create a comprehensive primer on the region’s colonial past and its destructively militarized present, its steady accumulation of photographically-indisputable facts gradually adding up to a sweeping damnation of American involvement—a film that doesn’t need to raise its voice to issue a deafening roar of protest.
