Far From Vietnam
Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch, Jean-Luc Godard, Chris Marker, Alain Resnais, 1967
France | 115 minutes

North American premiere of new restoration!

A lineup of international New Wave luminaries responded to Vietnam, in the words of contributor William Klein, “a little like Picasso confronted by the bombing of Guernica.” Klein’s New York street footage accompanies frontline dispatches from Joris Ivens and contributions from a trio of French icons (Godard, Resnais, Lelouch). As edited by Chris Marker, these fragments coalesce into a splintered portrait of a Left consumed with shock and complicity over a conflict beyond its control. An Icarus Films release.
