About

"... a film about two different types of history which can never adequately explain themselves to each other and which always remain in contradiction. The first is the history of aggressive U. S. foreign policy which, the film suggests, will inevitably lead to the end of the world unless things change. The second is a more personal history of a younf American growing up with rural values, loving the culture and the landscape into which he has been born but used, abused and confused by the way those values seem to have led to the horror of Vietnam." –Mick Eaton, London, spring 1985
