Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers

This historical film chronicles the story of former high-level Pentagon analyst Daniel Ellsberg and his efforts in revealing the dark secrets that enveloped the Vietnam War. It was through his endeavors of leaking over 7,000 pages of highly confidential documents to The New York Times, which made headlines across the globe, which helped uncover the many lies that surrounded the proxy war. Risking imprisonment, he garnered the title of both hero and traitor, and was both praised by the public whilst shunned by his former co-workers, all in the name of terminating the war effort that he had originally helped initiate.

This film not only tackles the power of morality in the form of a man’s change of heart, it serves as a view of the hazards of government secrecy. Witness as key historical events unfold from Watergate to the resignation of then president Nixon which catalysed the proxy war’s end.
