Flim "Heart and Mind" (Vietnam War)
The flim " Heart and Mind" is a documentary made in 1974 based on the Vietnam War directed by Peter Davis. In This flim we saw the epic documentaries of what really happened in the Vietnam War, which took place in Vietnam from 1960's to 1970's. While America was trying to live with pride at the same time people in Vietnam was suffering. As we saw it in the flim that to American People at that timeVietnam was seen as a toy that Americans can play with. As if Americans can do anything they want to Vietnam without paying any price for what they did or do. The American soliders treated the Vietnamies very poorly, they didn't have any respect for any people of Vietnam. Some soliders from the American Army didn't even know what they were doing, and they didn't even know the purpose of the War. Some soliders said that they were just there to do their job.The Americans made them suffer every way possible. The childrens were dieing, there was dead people eveywhere, the soliders were just shoting at anyone they see, there was poision spray, and bombing that killed millions of Vietnamies and their homes for no reason and people with injuries were walking around everywhere. This war was a disaster, and Americans got involved in this war without any solid reason. This Flim have opened my eyes of what America is really like and how power can turn you very evil over time. This film also pointed out of how America is seen to the world and how the world is seen to America as being the most powerful Nation in the world.
