Vietnam and Modes of Resistance

8/18/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

Vietnamese teenagers make puppets out of downed U.S. tanks & planes in this National Liberation Front-produced newsreel. In rural villages of liberated South Vietnam, our young performers learn to build and manipulate their uncanny creations, finally developing touring performances for children, all while U.S. warplanes buzz overhead. Powerful cultural resistance through the people’s art of puppetry.
