From the producers of An Inconvenient Truth comes another earth-changing indie masterpiece film - Chicago 10 - about the power of one man - Abbie Hoffman - to harness and unite the power of people against war in 1968. Hordes of people to be exact.
I saw the first-cut of this movie at Sundance, and it was fantastic. It had it all: protests, moving scenes, rare archival footage, animation, edge-of-your-seat drama, a great soundtrack, and even some long hair and bell bottoms. For me, the best part is that the film makes you feel empowered and motivated to be a part of democracy, a part of our country. You have a voice. I have a voice. Collectively our voices can matter even more. At what point do they become a threat and trigger an immune response by the establishment? To say that this film is timely is an understatement.
Please join Vanity Fair, Participant Productions, Roadside
Attractions, and River Road Entertainment for an evening of film and
