Nominated for an Academy Award and widely considered one of the most important political films ever made, THE WAR AT HOME vividly chronicles the anti-war protest movement of the 1960's and 70's. The film provides an illuminating look at the home front of the Vietnam War -- the war that students and other anti-war dissidents waged on America's political system, military and notions of patriotism.

Through a powerful combination of rare archival footage and interviews with students, community leaders, Vietnam veterans, and participants from all points of view this documentary shows how the anti-war movement grew into a genuine people's revolt in tandem with the escalation of war in Vietnam.
