In 1967 Joris Ivens and Marceline Loridan went to Vietnam to prepare and film what became The 17th Parallel (1968). On the initiative of Chris Marker they participated in the collective production Far From Vietnam and sent material that Loridan had filmed in Hanoi to Marker. Their images show daily life in Hanoi under the constant threat of bombardment by Americans. Edited together with footage produced by other directors, the film was a gesture of solidarity with the Vietnamese and a statement of protest against the aggressions led by the United States.
