Chicago 1968 Democratic Convention DVD


A powerful 16mm film made by Chicago filmmaker Bob Bolt, depicting the famous peaceniks - versus -"police riot" that began in Chicago’s Grant Park with tear gas, and climaxed with nightsticks in the city’s downtown streets that night---in front of the hotels where the delegates stayed, and the convention center where they met, to decide on the nomination of Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey for President in crucial 1968. It grippingly mirrors the polarization between young, anti-Vietnam War activists flaunting enemy North Vietnamese flags, as opposed to the older, more traditional police officers charged with upholding the law--and, through them---the more settled values of a society wrenched by moral conflict and social upheaval.

USA, 1968, Color, 15 minutes.
