Aro Recommended Medium Cool

Dir. Haskell Wexler
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Drama, Cult

Topics: Hippies & Psychedelia, Media, Politics.


Aroview: Filmed against the backdrop of the Democratic National convention in 1968 Chicago, this remarkable directorial effort by renowned cinematographer Haskell Wexler is both technically expressive and rich in text, and captures the political and social unrest of the era with striking authenticity.

Following a detached TV news cameraman (Robert Forster) who becomes increasingly aware of the political ramifications of his work, media complicity, corruption and prejudice are just some of the then-timely issues that still retain relevance decades after it was made.
