Hearts and Minds
Free Screening

Wednesday, July 4

A courageous and startling film, Peter Davis' landmark
documentary *Hearts
and Minds* unflinchingly confronts the United States'
involvement in
Vietnam. Using a wealth of sources—from interviews to
newsreels to
documentary footage of the conflict at home and
abroad—Davis constructs a
powerfully affecting portrait of the disastrous
effects of war. Explosive,
persuasive, and shocking, *Hearts and Minds* is an
overwhelming emotional
experience and the controversial winner of the 1974
Academy Award for Best

1974. 112 minutes.
