In the year of the pig by Emile De Antonio( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Documentary film, In the Year of the Pig (ITYOTP), tracing the history of Vietnam from the revolutionary war against France in the 1940s to the American bombings in the 1960s. The film begins with early biographical information on Hò̂ Chí Minh, the revolt in Saigon and the battle of Điện Biên Phủ. The film then explores American involvement in Vietnam prior to the deployment of American troops overseas. In particular, these segments focus on the 1956 elections resulting from the 1954 Geneva Peace Accords, the rise of the Ngô Đình Diệm regime, the American Friends of Vietnam (a United States group that supported the Saigon Regime), and the emergence of the National Liberation Front. ITYOTP details U.S. support for the Diem regime through Vice President Johnson's trip to Vietnam and speeches given by John Foster Dulles and other government officials. Turning to escalating tensions between the Diem regime and Vietnamese citizenry, the film depicts a Buddhist parade protesting Ngô Đình Nhu's Buddhist pagoda raids. The parade culminates in the self-immolation of monk Thích Quảng Đức, credited with catalyzing anti-Diem sentiment and leading to the 1963 coup resulting in his and Nhu's death. This part of the film also contains discussion of the battle of Xuân Lộc and the failure of the strategic hamlet program. ITYOTP then traces the escalation of U.S. involvement in Vietnam: the decision to send American troops abroad, war strategies, the ambiguous attacks on the U.S.S. Maddox and the C. Turner Joy at the Gulf of Tonkin, Operation Rolling Thunder, and Operation Cedar Falls. The film also explores anti-Vietnamese sentiment among American troops; anti-war sentiment among American academics, intellectuals, and spiritual leaders; citizen militias in Vietnam; and the organization of Vietnamese war tactics, including anti-aircraft fire. Combining archival footage, excerpts from Vietnamese propaganda films and original interviews, the film also includes images of "search and destroy" missions, bombings, arrests, torture, and American politicians. Interviewees include scholars and political figures such as Harry S. Ashmore, Daniel Berrigan, Joseph Buttinger, William R. Corson, Phillippe Devillers, David Halberstam, Roger Hillsman, Jean Lacouture, Kenneth P. Landon, Thruston B. Morton, Paul Mus, Charlton Osbourn, Harrison Salisbury, Ilya Todd, John Toller, David K. Tuck, David Werfel, and John White
