Abstract

Closer to a documentary than a drama, this film draws from director Pierre Schoendoerffer’s personal experiences as an army cameraman in this battle. The film follows an American reporter as he finds himself in the middle of the 57-day battle of Điện Biên Phủ from March to May 1954 in Vietnam between the French army and the Việt Minh, which finally resulted in the defeat and surrender of the French forces and France's eventual withdrawal from Vietnam.
