  • The Weather Underground

    2002. USA. Directed by Sam Green, Bill Siegel. Drawing on the radical filmmaking aesthetics of Emile de Antonio and Robert Kramer, Green and Siegel’s Academy Award–nominated portrait of the Weather Underground features riveting news and home-movie footage, photographs, and never-before-seen FBI documents that trace their attempts to bring home the Vietnam War—and bring down the U.S. government and Wall Street—including the bombings that led to a nationwide manhunt. The film also presents contemporary interviews with former members, including Bill Ayers (alleged “friend of Obama”), Mark Rudd, Bernardine Dohrn, David Gilbert, and Brian Flanagan, that are marked by conflicted feelings of defiance, regret, disillusionment, and hope and that mirror the splintering objectives and methods that led to the militant group’s demise. 92 min.
