In 1971, at the height of the Vietnam War, Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland toured with an anti-war comedy show across Southeast Asia — F.T.A aka “Fuck the Army.” It was “The Show the Pentagon Couldn’t Stop!”
It was directly engaged with and inspired by veterans against the war and, naturally, it upset U.S. military higher-ups.
The F.T.A. tour was highly controversial and was a huge success among stationed soldiers. In spite of positive reviews and business, director Francine Parker’s film version was quickly taken out of circulation due to political pressures and has been difficult to see for decades. F.T.A. has now been fully restored in 4K by IndieCollect and is preceded by a new video introduction by Academy Award-winning actor and activist Jane Fonda, which provides historical context and explains the impetus that sparked the creation of the F.T.A. troupe.
