(Loin de Vietnam). Recently rereleased after being long unavailable theatrically, Far from Vietnam is a unique collaboration by seven noted directors (William Klein, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Lelouch, Joris Ivens, Chris Marker, Agnès Varda, and Alain Resnais), produced as a fundraiser for the Vietnamese. Much of the credit for this goes to Chris Marker, who put it all together. But there was also a team spirit created by the situation in Vietnam that led the artists to want to speak out, directly and boldly, in a group work. The result is a provocative treatment of footage shot in Vietnam, France, the U.S., and Cuba.
