An in-depth examination of protest activities surrounding the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, SUMMER ’68 reveals draft resistance, the growth of G.I. coffee houses, the development of alternative media and the early days of Third World Newsreel (aka Newsreel), our program partner for this screening and talkback. This powerful documentary also explores the tensions the movement faced in using mainstream media to broadcast its message as well as the philosophies, tactics, and problems of the student movement in the crucial year of 1968. This film was preserved by the National Film Preservation Foundation.
The film will be available to view for two days leading up to the panel discussion, from Wednesday, September 23-Thursday, September 24, with a final screening at 6 PM Thursday.Buy tickets/get more info now
