Three London actors, obsessed by the photograph of a wounded Vietnamese child, try to understand the spiral of violence in the Vietnam War. Meetings, discussions, demonstrations and testimonies about key events tell the nonsense of war, with a powerful use of satirical songs and devastating irony. Peter Brook’s long-unseen drama-doc, released in 1968 at the height of the conflict, remains both thought-provoking and disturbing.
