Eddie Adams: Saigon '68 (18 min) US/Vietnam Thursday 10/15, 7:00 PM (Session 1) Director: Douglas Sloan Producer: Douglas Sloan Description: “ Still photographs are the most powerful weapon in the world. People believe them; but photographs do lie, even without manipulation. ” (Eddie Adams) In 1968, photojournalist Eddie Adams captured the most iconic image of the Vietnam War: a point blank execution of a Vietcong prisoner on a Saigon street. The photo epitomized the horror of wartime brutality and was circulated all over the world, spurring global opposition to the war. Yet the ‘truth of any photograph is not straightforward. The context of the shooting of the Vietcong prisoner has never properly been examined. Saigon ‘68 explores the untold story behind this image and raises pertinent questions regarding our lack of visual literacy and the power of images to affect human rights agendas. Biography: Douglas Sloan is a documentary filmmaker and commercial director who has received numerous prestigious awards for his independent short films and commercial work. He is currently a Sundance Institute grantee for the development of a feature documentary based on his short film Saigon 68 which garnered three Best Documentary awards at Academy accredited festivals and the 2014 CINE Special Jury award. The short film was also the centerpiece of special event screenings at DOCNYC and the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival: Australia. Sloans film on artist Cindy Sherman is currently circulating festivals. Five other short films released within the past seven years including works on Annie Leibovitz and Elliott Erwitt received multiple Best Doc and festival Audience Awards. His film William Klein: Out of Necessity was broadcast on PBS.

There is a story led to Nguyen Van Lem execution it is as follows. Nguyen Van Lem (also referred to as Captain Bay Lop) led a sabotage unit along with Viet Cong tanks to attack the Armor Camp in Go Vap. After communist troops took control of the base, Bay Lop arrested Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Tuan with his family and forced him to show them how to drive tanks. When Lieutenant Colonel Tuan refused to cooperate, Bay Lop killed all members of his family including his 80-year-old mother. There was only one survivor, a seriously injured 10-year-old boy. Nguyen Van Lem was captured near a mass grave with 34 innocent civilian bodies. Lem admitted that he was proud to carry out his unit leaders order to kill these people. Having personally witnessed the murder of one of his officers along with that mans wife and three small children in cold blood, when Lém was captured and brought to him, General Loan summarily executed him using his sidearm, a. 38 Special Smith & Wesson Model 38 “Airweight” revolver, in midst of the crimes Nguyen Van Lem had committed the execution was justified in my opinion.
