Introduction to the screening and debate in English
Make an escape to the past on October 4th when CPH PIX and Husets Biograf unearth a secret trove of propaganda films recently found in Denmark: 16 mm and 35 mm short films from the Vietnam War showing both American and North Vietnamese perspectives.
Often graphic and brutal, although also informative and sometimes unintentionally poetic, the films focus on everything from captivated American pilots and Vietnamese women on the front line to the effect of the bombs on the country. The films unveil atrocities committed by both sides.
Bjerre-Poulsen, author of the book ‘Vietnam Krigen’ (The Vietnam
War), will introduce the screening in English.
The program is made possible with the help from Dansk Vietnamesisk Forening. Thanks to Jørgen Prag from the DVF board and to Toke Odin and Jack Stevenson.
