The Armies of the Night

The Armies of the Night ostensibly deals with the March on the Pentagon (the October 1967 anti-Vietnam War rally in Washington D.C.). Subtitled History as a Novel, Novel as History, Mailer essentially created his own genre for the narrative, split into historicized and novelized accounts of the March. The structure of the film will mimic the hybrid nature of the book by weaving documentary and narrative techniques into a single, seamless, thrilling whole.

  • Written by JOHN BUFFALO MAILER
  • Adapted from the book by NORMAN MAILER
  • Directed by JOE BERLINGER
