Aroview: A documentary essay film with seven segments each directed by seven French New Wave directors, who express their opposition to the Vietnam War and sympathy with the North-Vietnamese army. Creatively blends documentary footage (including Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro) with snippets from commercials and other pop culture of the time. The project was organised and edited by Chris Marker (LA JETEE).
Average rating (Very Good). Showing 1-1 of 1 member reviews.
4 stars (Very Good) Brilliant, but challenging. Very French perspective. Highlights for me were the scenes of war-torn Hanoi & interview with Fidel Castro advising that US technological superiority can never enable victory against guerrillas. Protest scenes in DC too long.~Sandy
