Video and Film Collection, 1945-2001


Quantity

91 titles (1/2" videocassette and 16 mm film)

Scope and Content

This collection consists of fiction films and documentaries that the Joiner Center has collected, purchased, or produced (primarily in videotape format), and videotapes of speakers and events sponsored by the center. Major and independent production companies in the United States, Vietnam, France, and elsewhere, published most of the documentaries and fiction films.
The published films and videos document aspects of several wars, the Vietnam War in particular, including day-to-day experiences of soldiers, the effects of agent orange, veterans, and anti-war movements. They were produced by major and independent production companies in the United States, Vietnam, France, and elsewhere. The videos of speakers and events are unedited; topics include the experiences of minority, women, and other veterans, Amerasians, nurses, and the effects of war, almost solely the Vietnam war. Many are of poetry readings. Most of the material in this collection is available for on-campus classroom use. Many of the published tapes and films are cataloged and described separately in the library's on-line catalog.
