Program: Independent Lens “Chicago 10”
Date: Wednesday, Oct. 22
Time: 8 p.m.
“Chicago 10” is a stylized, innovative approach that gives contemporary history a forced perspective. Writer and director Brett Morgen (The Kid Stays in the Picture) boldly mixes original animation with extraordinary archival footage to explore the buildup to and unraveling of the infamous conspiracy trial of the Chicago Seven. Set to the music of revolution then and now, “Chicago 10” is a parable of hope, courage and challenge as it portrays the struggle of young Americans attempting to confront an oppressive and armed government — their own.
