As the film continues, it's absorbingly intimate, rendering the women at the heart of the story increasingly familiar.

Haskell Wexler - 1969, 111"
The "cooler" the medium, "the more someone has to uncover and engage in the media" in order to "fill in the blanks." This film questions the role and responsibilities of television and its newscasts through a news reporter who finds himself becoming personally involved in the violence that erupts around the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Shot at a time of great social and political counterculture upheaval in the United States, Wexler's film reflects the conflicted nature of a country divided by issues of race, gender, poverty, crime, and war. This is verite filmmaking at its finest: mixing scripted and documentary techniques to present the enduring issues that we still face today, 50 years late.
