What Farocki Taught (Dir. Jill Godmilow. 1998, 30mins)

What Farocki Taught is literally and stubbornly a remake— a perfect replica in color and in English, of Harun Farocki’s black and white, 1969 German language film, Inextinguishable Fire. Produced at the height of the Vietnam War Farocki's film makes visible the production of Napalm B by Dow Chemical Corporation. Farocki posits questions on individual reponsibility and through the division of labour, the possibility for indifference felt by scientists, techicians and engineers involved in its production.

Far From Vietnam (Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch among others. 1967, 115mins)

Initiated and edited by Chris Marker, Far From Vietnam is an epic 1967 collaboration between Jean-Luc Godard, Joris Ivens, William Klein, Claude Lelouch, Alain Resnais and Agnes Varda in protest of American military involvement in Vietnam.
