Abstract:

In the year of the pig: With palpable outrage, Emile de Antonio assembles period interviews with journalists, politicians, and key military personnel and international newsreel and archival footage to create a scathing chronicle of America's escalating involvement in the Vietnam War. Produced at the height of the war, the savage and horrific images speak for themselves in perhaps the most controversial film of de Antonio's career.

Millhouse: A compilation of newsreel and TV footage with interviews with various political commentators dealing with the public career of Richard M. Nixon.

Underground: The film introduces each member of the "Weathermen" in a group discussion/interview made on May 1st, 1975 in a secret location. The era of the 60's and 70's is vividly bought to life by interweaving the stories of the "Weathermen's " personal political development with the significant events and personalities of the two decades.

Mr. Hoover and I: This film resulted from de Antonio's discovery that the FBI had been keeping tabs on him over the years, compiling over 10,000 pages of documents on his activities. The film provides fascinating insights into de Antonio's work methods, his personal life and his politics, while affording him the opportunity to avenge himself by presenting his own dossier on J. Edgar Hoover, the infamous former FBI chief.
