Southeast Asia, 1960's. Flash point of the Cold War. 

“Dateline-Saigon” tells the inspiring story of a small group of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists — David Halberstam, Neil Sheehan, Malcolm Browne, Peter Arnett, and photojournalist Horst Faas —  who fought to report a truth that was vastly different from the rosy version put forth by the White House during the early years of the Vietnam War...even as their own government sought to discredit them.

Narrated by Sam Waterston, the documentary combines the drama and high stakes of “All the President's Men” with the romance and danger of “The Year of Living Dangerously.”

Biography of  Director Tom Herman
Thomas D. Herman’s Dateline-Saigon is his directorial debut.

Prior to directing “Dateline-Saigon,” Herman was a co-producer of the Emmy-award winning feature film, Live from Baghdad, starring Michael Keaton and Helena Bonham-Carter.

Before that, Herman was a freelance producer for CNN as well as a correspondent for National Public Radio.

Herman received a BA with honors at the University of Pennsylvania, and continued his education at Harvard and Oxford Universities.

When he’s in between films, Herman practices law in Boston.
"Being a lawyer helps me pay the bills while I pursue my passion, filmmaking," Herman said.
