In 1971, at the height of the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland toured an anti-war comedy show across Southeast Asia. Despite being highly controversial, it was a huge success among stationed soldiers. Out of circulation and difficult to see for decades, F.T.A. has now been fully restored by IndieCollect in 4K.
“A stunning portrait of an antiwar musical comedy revue that was a corrective to Bob Hope's
gung-ho UFO shows.”
“Funny, biting and tuneful, it takes you right back there if you lived through it, and might be an eye-opener for activist ‘Ok, Boomer’ millennials.”
“An important record showing the strength of the American people's opposition to the Vietnam War.”
"Brought together elements of the Old and New Lefts, radical politics and Hollywood celebrity, in an exceptional, and exceptionally powerful, way.”
