Filmed at the Camp Evans military base in Vietnam, this footage captures daily life of the soldiers stationed there, including shots of smoke in the distance near, a local resident, helicopters, and some of the base pets. The Marcellus Hartman Collection consists of over 300 Super 8 films made by Hartman, a Texan, while serving in the military in Vietnam in the early 1970s. The films document everyday life on his base, capturing the comings and goings of soldiers and others who worked on the base, helicopters arriving and taking off, and images of the surrounding landscape from Hartman's visits to cities and other military locations in Vietnam.
