In the Year of the Pig

Restored 35mm Print

Emile de Antonio’s Academy Award–nominated In The Year of the Pig makes the case against US intervention in Vietnam using an incendiary montage style. The film “connects the bloody dots between politicians and business leaders, Western imperialists, and puppet governments, using a collage of rare archival footage from the French colonial period, film dispatches from the current conflict, and interviews with American policymakers and international experts on Vietnam. Completed in 1969, in the thick of both the undeclared war and the growing anti-war movement, Pig is an explosive analysis of the American war machine” (Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research).
