Newseum’s ‘Reporting Vietnam’: New Exhibit of Powerful Photos & News Footage for the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War: May 22, 2015 – Sept. 12, 2016Tue May 19, 2015
The following video presents Documentary Video: The Napalm Girl:
40 years ago we met The Napalm Girl. The iconic photo woke the world up to the brutal reality of collateral damage. We traveled to Vietnam-to the very spot where history was made-to produce The Power of a Picture for ABC7, Los Angeles.
All the key players were interviewed…the little girl-Kim Phuc, the photographer-Nick Ut, the reporter-Christopher Wain, Vietnam vets…we’re extremely proud of this news-doc. Four decades later, the photo and the girl are as powerful as ever.
Here’s the first part of the critically-acclaimed TV special. Winner of the 2013 Edward R Murrow Award.
