As the Vietnam War escalated in the 1960s, Hollywood was struggling financially and the longtime studio system was collapsing. Into the vacuum stepped a cadre of young filmmakers concerned and affected by the unpopular war. Against a backdrop of political and cultural unrest, a new Hollywood emerged.

Filmmaker, screenwriter, and University of Missouri-Kansas City associate professor Mitch Brian explores the industry’s rebirth, using clips from some of the greatest films of the Vietnam era.
