The Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival is pleased to shine a light on the important intersection of film and journalism with the screening of two major documentary films about the Vietnam War at this year’s Festival.
Dateline-Saigon, directed by Tom Herman, profiles the groundbreaking work in the crucible of early-60s Saigon of five Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists: The New York Times’s David Halberstam; Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, and legendary photojournalist Horst Faas of the Associated Press; and United Press International’s Neil Sheehan. An essential example of film revealing the soul of investigative journalism, Dateline-Saigon will screen at Town Hall Theater on Friday, August 24 at 130p. Mr. Herman will attend the screening and participate in a Q&A with special guests following the film, hosted by MNFF Artistic Director, Jay Craven.
