In the Year of the Pig

by Christine Becker

Text written by Sara Blaylock, University of Minnesota Duluth: "This clip from Emile de Antonio's In the Year of the Pig (1968) is meant to show a typical search-and-destroy mission by the US Army during the Vietnam War. The director explained later on that this sequence was actually a montage of separate clips. He nevertheless legitimated the edit as a visualization of actions that occurred "in a moral sense.""
