F.T.A. "Free the Army" and "F*ck The Army"

USA - 1972 (97 minutes)

This documentary starring Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland, addresses the

vietnam war and the policies behind US involvement.

Made in 1972, the comedy show was abruptly withdrawn from theatrical release

after one week in Americam theatres.

During 1971 and 1972, Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland led a quasi-USO tour

that played in towns outside of U.S. military bases along the West Coast and

throughout the Pacific. Fonda referred to the tour as "political vaudeville"

and the show itself was called "FTA" (the acronym standing for "Free the

Army" and "F*ck the Army"). The audiences were primarily the men and women

of the U.S. armed services, and during the tour Fonda and her company

interviewed the various soldiers, sailors and marines regarding their

thoughts on the Vietnam war.

A rare chance to see this film which has been recently used by different

anti war campaigners to encourage soldiers to refuse to serve in Irak.
