The story underlying the most influential and electrifying photograph to come out of the Vietnam War – and how the picture transformed the lives of Eddie Adams, who captured the moment on film, and Nguyen Ngoc Loan, the man who pulled the trigger. The film reveals the little known, and very surprising, back-story and follows the complicated, conflicted lives lead by Adams and Loan both before and after the photo transformed world opinion. The film also launches a broader inquiry into our perception and understanding of the visual image. Is there something about that photo – about many such images – we should know other than what we see?
Saigon '68 represents Sloan's fifth documentary film project within the past six years. Sloan recently received a Sundance Grant to expand Saigon '68 into a feature length film. When he is not developing documentaries, Sloan is directing commercials and branded content through Icontent a highly acclaimed New York-based production and creative services company Sloan founded.
