In 2006 the anti-Vietnam War film, Winter Soldier, was released on DVD for the first time since its 1972 premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The controversial film interviews former soldiers returning from the war who described the atrocities committed by US troops. E. James Smith edited the 18-minute bonus interview with the filmmakers and the trailer which are included on the DVD release. The dynamic roundtable discussion reunites the filmmakers as they relive their experiences and struggles while making the film. The trailer gives a strong impression of the film.
