Synopsis

Footage of a man doing push-ups is overlaid by images of Vietnamese faces, and a ticking metronome counts down from 100 while the words "dog - pig - monkey" are yelled repeatedly. The film illustrates the idea that American soldiers who used the term "Vietnamese" instead of referring to their opponants as animals were forced to do one hundred push-ups. 

 

Part of the Vietnam War cycle of documentaries by filmmaking team H&S.
