British journalist James Cameron directs this forgettable 43-minute documentary on the everyday life of the North Vietnamese. He makes erroneous claims that the film is uncensored and untouched, and supposedly Cameron can tell what country airplanes belong to by the sound of the engines. Peasants are shown with weapons in preparation for a U.S. attack as they work in the fields. Interviews with locals are claimed to be live, but it was acknowledged that sound was later dubbed in a London studio.
