Details

Revolutionary for its style and its confrontational subject, Emile de Antonio's In the Year of the Pig combines historical footage of the Vietnam War and interviews with prominent figures of time. Pulizer Prize-winning journalist Harry Ashmore, activist Daniel Berrigan, and intelligence officer David Halberstam are among those who appear in this film that is part of the exhibition Artists Respond (83 minutes, 1968, not rated).
