a film by Peter Davis
A courageous and startling film, Peter Davis' landmark documentary Hearts
and Minds unflinchingly confronts the United States' involvement in Vietnam.
Using a wealth of sources-from interviews to newsreels to documentary footage of
the conflict at home and abroad-Davis constructs a powerfully affecting portrait
of the disastrous effects of war. Explosive, persuasive, and shocking, Hearts
and Minds is an overwhelming emotional experience and the controversial
winner of the 1974 Academy AwardŽ for Best Documentary.
