Peter Davis discusses his 1974 documentary "Hearts and Minds," which won the Academy Award for Best Documentary and was said to help define the country’s commitment to extricating itself from the disastrous war in Vietnam. The film is a powerful and profoundly insightful critique of the United States’ involvement in Vietnam, and remains especially relevant today with wars continuing in Iraq and in Afghanistan.
"Hearts and Minds" is now playing at Cinema Village, 22 East 12th Street. More information here.
