No Game is one of the most important surviving film documents produced by the Left during the Vietnam protests. The seventeen-minute documentary, built from footage pooled by a number of filmmakers, chronicles the 1967 march on the Pentagon demanding an end to the war. Besides containing some of the best footage of these protests in action, the film's structure and method of production give evidence of the existence of a network of independent filmmakers. In particular, the use of multiple camerapersons along the route of the march clearly demonstrates, unlike other newsreels of this time, that Left filmmakers were attempting to organize and collectivize their resources. The film stands as one of the most cohesive and interesting documents of the protest movement.
