Godard undertook a collaborative project with the U.S. filmmakers Richard Leacock and D.A. Pennebaker in October of 1968. Provisionally entitled One A.M., or "One American Movie", the project was to be shot in the United States, but never reached completion under Godard's direction. Pennebaker and Leacock continued with the project under the title One P.M. , or 'One Parallel Movie,' and did not release the film until 1972. See more »
This movie has got to be made available to the public !
Eldridge Cleaver, Jean-Luc Godard, Tom Hayden, Rip Torn all hanging around Chicago, around the time of the Chicago Eight trial (I think). The talks Tom Hayden gave in this movie sum up the feelings most young people had about the political system at the time. His talks in this movie hit home like nothing else I've ever seen or heard. This is a GREAT documentary of the late sixties/early seventies in Chicago. The film also features Jean-Luc out on the south side streets of Chicago grooving on some chanting and percussion, the Sears tower in the background. I also remember an image of Rip Torn riding up in a construction elevator (dressed as an Indian?).
