Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 4.1
Nominated for an Academy Award® and widely considered one of the most important political films ever made, THE WAR AT HOME vividly chronicles the anti-war protest movement of the 1960s and 70s. The film provides an illuminating look at the home front of the Vietnam War (the war that students and other anti-war dissidents waged on America's political system), military and notions of patriotism. Through a powerful combination of rare archival footage and interviews with students, community leaders, Vietnam veterans, and participants from all points of view, THE WAR AT HOME shows how the anti-war movement grew into a genuine people's revolt in tandem with the escalation of war in Vietnam.

Honest and inspiring. This doco on the anti-Vietnam War movement in the US at once shows how people can become radicalised and push toward revolutionary conclusions, but also how having the wrong kind of politics leads to individualism and defeat. Wonderful to see the Vietnam Vets Against the War at the end too. The role of the capitalist state is really clear in this film, and just how little regard our rulers actually have for democracy. And liberals get a good roasting, which is always nice. The music is of course, awesome.
