Chicago 10

'Chicago 10' (Mar. 20) Part archival footage, part animation, all rabble-rousing, Brett Morgen's "Chicago 10" is a reconstruction of the events surrounding the 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. From the Yippie festival in Lincoln Park to the conspiracy trial of the activists and protesters known as the Chicago Seven a year later, this impassioned documentary is both an indictment of what Morgen sees as our indifference toward the current war and a call to action. Morgen compares and contrasts the political situation of the late 1960s with that of today until it becomes impossible to watch the film without wondering why another escalating, pointless war has yet to spark anything resembling the social activism of that era. --Carina Chocano C-7
