DIRECTOR: HASKELL WEXLER

CAST: ROBERT FORSTER, VERNA BLOOM, PETER BOYLE

John Sayles in person

The late, lamented Robert Forster has one of his greatest roles as a television news camera operator who, shooting in Chicago during the summer of the Democratic National Convention, experiences a political epiphany. Shot around the real-life DNC riots and featuring footage that riskily integrates the actors into the actual chaos, Wexler’s film provocatively intermingles documentary and fiction elements, in so doing encapsulating something of the street-level turmoil of the day.
