The Screen Guide

FRONTLINE is a film about the Vietnam War as seen through the eyes of Australian news cameraman, Neil Davis, who spent 11 years in the combat zone shooting unique film seen on millions of television screens around the world. He was the only cameraman to cover the fall of Saigon. FRONTLINE is an extraordinary record of Davis' involvement in the conflict, and gives a lucid impression of what it was like to be there on the frontline. It combines extensive use of Davis' own footage, archival film and interviews with Davis discussing the war, the role of the war correspondent and his own ethics.
