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.
