Directed by Haskell Wexler | 1969

With Robert Forster, Verna Bloom, Peter Bonerz

The debut feature from acclaimed cinematographer Haskell Wexler examines the media’s role in social crisis through a groundbreaking mix of cinéma vérité and quasi-scripted narrative. While covering the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, a disenchanted news cameraman finds himself caught between political protests and the police’s violent response to them—culminating in a virtuosic sequence that embeds the camera in the middle of a riot.
