Sub titel: The Weather Underground Organisation
The Weather Underground Organisation was an urban guerrilla offshoot of the white student left organisation, SDS. They waged armed struggle against the US government in solidarity with national liberation struggles in the US and internationally from 1969 to 1976, as they attempted to move from resistance to revolution. This 1974 film is a series of interviews of the central committee; Bill Ayers, Kathy Boudin, Bernardine Dhorn, Jeff Jones, and Cathy Wilkerson. It was made as part of the central committee's 'inversion strategy' - a strategy to essentially surface from the the underground and claim leadership of the militant white left at the time. A classic of its time, most certainly, and often (unintentionally) hilarious and astonishing. Watch out only available in VHS-NTSC system (not playable on `normal' European - PAL - video recorders)!
