Only the Beginning

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

An account of rebellion in the troops against the war in Vietnam. "We don't want to fight anymore, but if we do it will be to take these steps!" a vet proclaims in front of the White House as he and others tear off the medals and decorations pinned to their fatigues and return them to a trash heap on the White House lawn. The gruesome genetic effects of Agent Orange on the land and on Vietnamese babies is shown and US soldiers talk about how GIs are killing their own officers.

The editing - the use of counterpoint, pacing, music, and the diverse footage - is exceptional.
