Artwork text

The most important agitprop film from the anti-Vietnam War movement. A treatise on napalm production, distribution of labor, and heterony-mous consciousness—with Brechtian severity, didactic in style, sharp in diction. Today it documents the didactic rigorism of the ‘68 revolt but also its ability to clarify complicated inter-relationships in such a way that understanding and agitating became a natural union for many people of that generation. (Klaus Kreimeier)
