Rough but fascinating documentary about Chicago politics in 1968
Very raw, rough documentary about the riots in Chicago at the 1968 Democratic convention, focusing on the unlikely alliance between the Black Panthers and a group of poor southern whites now living in Chicago calling themselves the 'Young Patriots' complete with confederate flags.
Boring at moments, incoherent at others, but overall a fascinating capturing of a moment in history where there was the beginning of an understanding, now seemingly lost, that the real issue in America isn't race, but class.
A valuable reminder that the politics of the 60s were more complex than the cliché versions we see portrayed in modern popular culture.
