Overview

Screening in the American Spectrum section of the 1999 Sundance Film Festival, this documentary by Academy award-winning filmmakers Freida Lee Mock Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision and Terry Sanders A Time Out of War explores the 462 American prisoners of war who were held in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton" during the Vietnam War. Told entirely through interviews with survivors and previously unseen Vietnamese footage that documents their lives during the imprisonment, the filmmakers focus on the strength of overcoming adversity rather than the horrors of the war and the prisons. The film also concerns itself with the return of the 462 pilots held for over eight-and-one-half years, and how Americans celebrated their homecoming.
