Overview

Documentary filmmaker Emil DeAntonio's In the Year of the Pig was financed by New York society matron Mrs. Orville Schell; her fund-raising dinners earned her an executive producer credit on the completed film. An extremely radicalized view of the still-raging war in Vietnam, Pig was so unabashedly provocative that it earned DeAntonio the tireless scrutiny of FBI head J. Edgar Hoover whose file on the filmmaker inspired yet another DeAntonio production of 1990, Mr. Hoover and I.

The film says what needs to be said, but it often ends up preaching only to the converted.
