Through the Lens: Dateline - Saigon
Join us Wednesday, April 16 at 7:00 p.m. for the next installment in our Through the Lens series, presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center.
New York Times reporter David Halberstam says when the government's twisting the truth, reporters have their biggest role to play. The new film DATELINE – SAIGON explores that idea through the work of Halberstam and four Pulitzer-prize winning journalists known as the "Saigon Boys." Young reporters in the early days of the Vietnam War, they were soon at odds with the Kennedy White House, and their work landed them on South Vietnamese assassination lists. Filmmaker Thomas Herman says though that their work ushered in an era of journalism aimed at holding the government accountable.
On Thursday, April 10, Thomas Herman joins Doug on RadioWest to talk about his film.
We're presenting a free Work-in-Progress screening of DATELINE – SAIGON Wednesday, April 16th at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center at 7:00 p.m. Thomas Herman will be on-hand for a Q&A following the film to answer your questions. The event is free, and seats are available on a first-come basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
