The 317th Platoon

Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 16:00

Rare screening for what is often cited as the greatest war film ever made and the model for many films in that genre. Shot in Cambodia as the US involvement in the Vietnam War was beginning, the writer/director draws on his own experiences as a French soldier in the Indo-China war in 1954 and as a war photographer.


Dir. Pierre Schoenderffer (France 1965, 100mins 12)
