Loin Du Vietnam (Far From Vietnam)

1967 / 115min / DCP

DIRECTOR: JEAN-LUC GODARD, JORIS IVENS, WILLIAM KLEIN, CLAUDE LELOUCH, AGNES VARDA, ALAIN RESNAIS, & CHRIS MARKER

Seven filmmakers opposed to the war in Vietnam offered up footage to the nonpareil cinematic essayist Chris Marker, which he then edited and matched with a sardonic, cutting voiceover. The result is this essential document of artistic outcry, combining footage of New York protests and across-the-barricades bickering by William Klein, battlefield witness from Joris Ivens and, from by Jean-Luc Godard and Alain Resnais, typically individual offerings to a communal undertaking.
