Chicago 10
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Fanta Ananas


Brett Morgen follows up his dazzling THE KID STAYS IN THE PICTURE with another daring, inventive work of nonfiction. CHICAGO 10 tells the raucous story of the trial that resulted after the tumultuous Democratic Convention in Chicago in 1968. During the convention, a group of Yippies and other confrontationists pulled off a series of sit-ins and pranks that led to an eruption of violence. The result was a trial that simultaneously amused, thrilled, and challenged the nation and our notions of freedom. The supposed leaders of these insurrections became defendants, who used their position in the spotlight to further provoke the powers-that-be. They included Abbie Hoffman, Jerry Rubin, Bobby Seale, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, and Lee Weiner.

Press

"Not content with trippy image pastiches, Morgen splinters narrative chronology into four distinct time frames..."

- Paul Arthur, Film Comment

"The director want to bring recent history to life for people who weren't around to witness it, and in that he succeeds pretty admirably."

- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times
