The Quiet Mutiny


Raffertys Theatre

Event Type

Cinema Screening

John Pilger’s first documentary film created a sensation when it broke the story of a rebellion emerging within the American army fighting the War in Vietnam. Combining candid interviews and frontline footage of Vietnam, The Quiet Mutiny portrays a growing rift between the US military bureaucrats and the soldiers who physically and mentally fight the war on the ground. Changing public and media perception of the war, this documentary contributed to the eventual withdrawal of US troops from the region.
