Dir. Sam Green, Bill Siegel
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Documentary / Hostages & Terrorism, History

Topics: Period 1960s, Period 1970s, Politics.


Aroview: A stimulating, incisive look back at the angry workings of "The Weathermen", a radical splinter faction of the protest movement who were responsible for dozens of state-targeted bombings in the early 1970s.

A unique history lesson that contrasts the mindsets of those involved in the radicalism of the time with a maturer perspective reflected in hindsight, this has an uncanny relevance in the post-9/11 era that alarmingly cautions how idealism can easily devolve into terrorism.
