Q&A with Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now, and filmmakers Glenn Silber and Barry Alexander Brown following the screening on Monday at 7:15pm

Academy Award Nominated for Best Documentary in 1979, Glenn Silber and Barry Alexander Brown’s powerful document of principled civil disobedience uses the ten-year history of antiwar resistance in one American city, Madison, Wisconsin, in the 1960s & early ‘70s as a microcosm of the national antiwar movement. Stereotype-busting interviews with student activists, police, and Vietnam vets illuminate a treasure trove of rare archival film. Featuring footage from the earliest antiwar protest in 1963 to the bombing of the Army Math Research Center in 1970 to the end of the U.S. war in Vietnam, this impassioned, vital work of politically charged non-fiction is newly restored in 4K and re-released in yet another period of American political conflict and turmoil.
