Hanoi, Martes 131968

Santiago Alvarez’s tribute to the Vietnamese people transcends its narrow aim as anti-imperialist agit-prop. Patient documentation of local folkways contextualizes the American military actions as brutal, unnatural incursions. Alvarez’s camera was there when the bombs fell on Hanoi and stayed on to witness the devastating aftermath. An astonishing cut from a close-up of a dancer’s elegant hand to heavy artillery remains a jolting memento of war’s blunt instruments.

Yet another documentary from a foreign about the Vietnam war. Why didn't everyone here see it as they saw it.
