Kim 's Story. The Road From Vietnam appeared in 1996. Created by
Shelley Saywell, a Canadian filmmaker, the documentary opens with a
shot of bombs released from a B-52, four canisters of napalm spiraling
down to earth. The narrator describes what the images show in color-
"a firestorm of napalm is captured on film." Then comes the tape of the
girl running down Highway 1, her mouth stretched open in agony. The
voice-over continues: "And an image is frozen in history." This bio-
graphical memoir in film proposes to tell the story of a wordless
photograph and to enlist the subject of the photograph in its unfolding.
"This is the story behind the picture that touched the world." Even before
the title and credits for the film roll, we have seen footage both of the
photo and of the scene of the photograph being taken.
