I made many documentaries while working at the National film board of Canada, my time there spanning 25 years from 1965 till the end of the 80s . My notable films began in the early 70s with, Sad song of Yellow skin. This was a personal journey to the streets of Saigon at the height of the war.
I hook up with some young American correspondents who are working underground, exposing nasty things about the war, and, with them explore strange places in Saigon . I go to an island of peace, a haven in the Mekong Delta run by a holy man called the Coconut Monk. He believes that by manipulating the symbols of things, he will be able to bring the terrible war to an end.
