Three black veterans of the Vietnam War discuss their militant opposition to the conflict, intercut with statements by residents of Harlem filmed during anti-war demonstrations. Martin Luther King's linking of the war in Vietnam to the civil rights struggle becomes the backbone to this radical documentary. NFSA 16mm print.

Screens with Black Panthers (Agnès Varda, USA/France, 1968, 28m) - Varda’s portrait of the militant black power group, filmed at the height of their notoriety during demonstrations demanding the release of Black Panther leader Huey Newton. NFSA 16mm print.

Also screens with As Long As I Can Walk (Peter Edward Dodds & Ross Campbell, Australia, 1971, 12m) - an impression of the anti-Vietnam war moratorium in Melbourne on 30 June 1971.
