Q&A with Glenn Silber on October 9
This meticulously constructed 1979 film recounts the development of the movement against the American war in Vietnam on the Madison campus of the University of Wisconsin, from 1963 to 1970. Using carefully assembled archival and news footage and thoughtful interviews with many of the participants, it culminates with the 1967 Dow Chemical sit-in and bombing of the Army Math Research Center three years later. One of the great works of American documentary moviemaking, The War at Home has also become a time capsule of the moment of its own making, a welcome emanation from the era of analog editing, and a timely reminder of how much power people have when they take to the streets in protest. A Catalyst Media Productions release.
