The Fall of Saigon and the South Vietnamese Exodus to AmericaStreaming Video - 2005
As communism tightened its grip on what was once South Vietnam, a stream of refugees poured into America. This program uses poignant interviews and archival footage to reveal the fortitude of Vietnamese who faced the gravest hardships in their escape to the U.S. following the fall of Saigon. In addition, Vu-Duc Vuong, of the University of California, Berkeley, and South Vietnamese and American veterans give their firsthand views on the Vietnam War, exploring the factors that led to the elimination of U.S. military and financial support as well as the war's continuing power to polarize opinion in both the U.S. and Vietnam.
