First Run Features • 1h 36m
Directed by Thomas D. Herman • Documentary • With David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, Horst Faas, Sam Waterston • 2019 • 96 minutes
Southeast Asia, 1960's. Flash point of the Cold War. Dateline-Saigon tells the inspiring story of a small group of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists - David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, and the great photojournalist Horst Faas - who fought to report a truth that was vastly different from the rosy version put forth by the White House during the early years of the Vietnam War...even as their own government sought to discredit them.
The film features original interviews with key characters, some of whom are no longer living, and rare archival motion picture and still photographs, many from private archives, seen here publicly for the first time.
Narrated by Sam Waterston, the documentary combines the drama and high stakes of All the President's Men with the romance and danger of The Year of Living Dangerously.
