In the era of Trump, “Dateline–Saigon” tells a vital tale of a group of journalists who fought to tell the world a painful and important story even as their own government was trying to discredit them. Narratively powerful, this film is a distant mirror on a present-day drama: the ability of courageous citizens to speak truth to power.
