Movie Info

This landmark documentary chronicles a 1971 meeting during which more than 100 American veterans spoke publicly at a Detroit motel about the inhumanity and brutality of the Vietnam War. Attempting to add context to the recently uncovered My Lai Massacre of 1968, the soldiers, a group that includes future Senator and presidential candidate John Kerry, recall witnessing atrocities committed against Vietnamese soldiers, unarmed civilians, children and prisoners of war.

Audience Reviews for Winter Soldier

  • Nov 11, 2009
    Initially banned in the U.S., <i>Winter Soldier</i> is a candid compilation of eyewitness accounts and first hand testimony about atrocities committed during the Vietnam war. Harsh but eye opening.

    "Winter Soldier" is an illuminating and powerful documentary filmed in grainy black and white of the 1971 hearings held by the Vietnam Veterans against the War. In the hearings, the veterans testify about atrocities committed by American troops in Vietnam. The documentary consists of testimony and conversation with some photographic evidence. All of which is thoroughly gripping. What comes to the fore in the testimony is how much an underlying cause of the atrocities racism was. I remember reading that demeaning a group of people(in this case using the derogatory term "gook" to describe the Vietnamese people) makes it psychologically easier to hurt them. In the end, the ultimate responsibility is laid at the foot of the command officers. They are the ones who set policy and punishments. The documentary is timely, as ever. The movie urges the need for people of different viewpoints to converse. Occasionally, this can serve as a form of therapy.
