John Pilger: Documentaries That Changed The World

John Pilger's impressive 35 year career as an investigative journalist has seen him uncover the grisly truth behind numerous injustices and conflicts around the globe, injustices generally ignored by the popular media. Presented here are four of his most important documentary films. "The Quiet Mutiny" (1970) - His first film, explores the shift in the US Army's morale during the Vietnam conflict as a growing rebellion comes from within. "Do You Remember Vietnam" (1978) - Three years after the American pull-out from Saigon, Pilger returned to Vietnam to examine the state of the country and its people in the face of international sanctions, following the longest war of the 20th century. "Year Zero: The Silent Death of Cambodia" (1979) - One of Pilger's most revelatory documentaries, uncovering the brutal and bloody reign of Pol Pot in Cambodia, as it was quietly ignored by Western governments. "Death of a Nation: The Timor Conspiracy" (1994) - A horrifying expose of the West's complicity in the twenty year genocide in East Timor that resulted in more than 200, 000 murders.
