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, ā€œa little like Picasso confronted by the bombing of Guernica.ā€ Kleinā€™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.
