Brave, intelligent, integral and important part of U.S. history
Julia and Jim have done a great historical and artistic service towards helping round out the larger story of the American political heart. This is so important for all generations to witness and learn from. The sordid fear-mongering that passes for "saving" America from all sorts of changes that threaten those in false and temporary power is indeed the shadow side of our history. This film cuts through that fog to show an important aspect of our grassroots seeking for justice, better ways of self government, working to learn from history and from those who thought and think deeply outside the lines, and does so in a very human way. So that both the ignorant and the educated, those who lived the times and those who came later, can integrate with perspective a very scary time and understand more about the tendency to follow the crowd. A fine film to show in history, government, etc. classes, starting in early high school. Should be available in every library.
