Nominee for the Academy Award. And winner of the National Society of Film Critics Award and the Sundance Audience Award, Mark Kitchell’s first feature has come to be regarded as a defining documentary about the protest movements of the 1960s. The film brings an impressive sense of immediacy to the decade’s events: the birth of the Free Speech movement, civil rights marches, anti-Vietnam protests, the counterculture, the women’s movement, the rise of the Black Panthers. The San Francisco Chronicle called it “an exciting and provocative record,” and the Los Angeles Times wrote: “The film’s intellect is matched by a vivid sense of history; this really is the ‘60s again.” Writers: Susan Griffin, Mark Kitchell, Stephen Most. Director: Mark Kitchell. (US 1990) 117 min. plus discussion.
