USA – 1979 – 97 MIN – COLOUR - FEATURE - IN ENGLISH
A FILM BY GLENN SILBER & BARRY ALEXANDER BROWN

Nominated for an Academy Award and widely considered one of the most important political films ever made, THE WAR AT HOME vividly chronicles the anti-war protest movement of the 1960's and 70's. The film provides an illuminating look at the home front of the Vietnam War - the war that students and other ani-war dissidents waged on America's political system, military and notions of patriotism.

Through a powerful combination of rare archival footage and interviews with students, community leaders, Vietnam veterans, and participants from all points of view, THE WAR AT HOME shows how the anti-war movement grew into a genuine people's revolt in tandem with the escalation of war in Vietman.

A FILM BY GLENN SILBER

Examining the making of America's most notorious demagogue, Senator Joseph R. McCarthy.

McCarthy became one of the most feared and powerful politicians of the 20th century when he exploited the "anti-communist" delirium and fear that blanketed post World War II America.
