ANSWER Film Series
on the 30th anniversary of the liberation of Vietnam—two documentaries by Cuban filmmaker, Santiago Álvarez

Hanoi Tuesday the 13th

Filmed in Hanoi on December 13, 1966, this documentary records the lives of people in the Vietnam capital and surrounding countryside at the height of U.S. bombing. Their daily activities are presented in a collage of images: building irrigation ditches, planting rice , fishing, weaving...life continued despite the shower of U.S. bombs. During these air raids, the people formed armed self-defense units so efficient that the life of the nation was not interrupted. 40min. 1967.

79 Springtimes of Ho Chi Minh

This film memorializes the leader of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, on the occasion of his death. It narrates the story of a life which is also the story of a nation – recounting his important accomplishments in the struggle against colonialism and imperialism.The simplicity of his ascetic life of study, work, and struggle is contrasted to the pomp of his official funeral, where the film documents the immense outpouring of grief by the Vietnamese people on the death of their leader. The film’s most impacting sequence is its outcry against the Vietnam War, with scenes of anti-war protests in the U.S. and battle scenes give way to disturbing images of mutilated Vietnamese children. 24min. 1969.
