Peace - is a history of the search for peace throughout the war. The ultimate ceasefire is seen by the U.S. as ‘peace with honour’, and by Saigon as a sellout. “Surrender” - examines the final offensive in 1975, two years after America’s withdrawal. “The Unsung Soldiers” - views the silent homecoming of the veterans. The post war world is unrewarding and sometimes hostile towards men who fought in America’s first ‘defeat’.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
