July 22 – The Weather Underground

Thorough archival footage and interviews, this fascinating film documents the violent campaign of the Weather Underground, a faction of young protestors in 1960s and ‘70s US frustrated by the seemingly ineffectual methods of peaceful protest. It covers the whole violent campaign – from streets riots and bombings to eventual disillusionment and repression by the FBI. The Weather Underground raises difficult questions about protest, violence and political change that are as timely now as ever.

Discussions will be led by M A Branes-Wynters (aka barney doodlebug)

£2 entry to film
