Starring Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Michael Alaimo, Len Chandler, Holly Near And a Cast of Thousands of antiwar soldiers. 1971-two years after Richard Nixon had promised to end the Vietnam War, American troops were still fighting and American warplanes were still bombing North Vietnam relentlessly.
A massive GI Movement to end the war was sweeping through the troops, wreaking havoc on the U.S. military. Into that mix came The FTA (F*** the Army) Show, a caustic, electrifying, sharply antiwar comedy review led by Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland. As they toured outside military bases from Guam to the Philippines, over 60,000 soldiers cheered and joined the show’s call to end the war. It was an explosive, historical moment never seen before or since.
FTA, Francine Parker’s powerful documentary of the tour, opened in U.S. theaters in 1972, as the Nixon administration was still escalating the war and fighting for its political life at home. After only one week, the film mysteriously disappeared-never to be seen again. Until now.
