A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
“FTA” (F*** the Army)

The anti-war film that was banned for 35 years. Hear a report from ANSWER organizer and Vietnam vet, Bill Hackwell about GI resistance then and now.

“FTA”, the documentary produced by and starring Jane Fonda, was the rare film which bluntly addressed the Vietnam War and the policies behind the U.S. involvement. The film was abruptly withdrawn after only one week in release and has never been made available for re-issue until recently. During 1971 and 1972, Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland led a quasi-USO tour called FTA that played in towns outside of U.S. military bases along the West Coast and throughout the Pacific. The audiences were primarily the men and women of the U.S. armed services, and during the tour Fonda and her company interviewed the various soldiers, sailors and marines regarding their thoughts on the Indochina slaughterhouse.

The film’s true power comes in the frank comments from the servicemen and women who openly question the purpose and planning of the American involvement in Vietnam. 1972, 97 min.
